Memory, Imagination, and Consciousness in Funes the Memorious and Meursault

- Memory, Imagination, and Consciousness in Funes the Memorious and Meursault       Consciousness separates humans from sense perceiving “garbage heaps.” Jorge Luis Borges, in “Funes the Memorious,” and Albert Camus, in “The Stranger,” explore the causes of consciousness.

Order, Memory, and Anxiety in Borges' Fiction

- Order, Memory, and Anxiety in Borges' Fiction The fundamental questions of how and why we read have an infinitude of answers, none of which entirely 'do the job', simply because they bear too closely upon the automatic, (and therefore, to us, secret) processes of the mind; the act of reading is too closely related to the act of living in the world for us to comprehend definitively. There are few writers who understand and exploit this primal link more persistently than Jorge Luis Borges. One of the ways in which he forces us to examine the parallels between reading and existing (I use the word 'force' because it is not always a pleasant confrontation) is through the thematic use of me...   [tags: Reading Memorize Memory Essays]

- Several compartments known as organelles can be found within the cytosol of eukaryotic cells. Organelles are bound by a plasma membrane and contain specific information related to different cellular functions (Hardin et al., 2012).

The Transformations in the Spanish Theatrical System during the First Third of the Nineteenth Century

- The Spanish theatrical life during the eighteenth century is characterized by the presence of systems and representation modes typical of the Golden Age, in conflict with the approaches of the Enlightenment culture (see chapters 5 and 6). However, with Earl of Aranda’s reforms, as of 1767 (Rubio Jiménez, 1998) a restrictive regularization of the companies’ constitution and their itinerant regime will start.

Literary Crossovers

- Literary Crossovers I wish that I could wrap a character up in the fabric of the author's words and, carrying them by the handles of description and narration, pluck them from their own story and drop them down into the middle of someone else's. On sitcoms, sometimes, they do "crossovers" - episodes in which a person from another show appears and is integrated into the story line as the character he or she elsewhere portrays. I would like to create a series of literary "crossovers." I would send Funes to Vietnam with Tim O'Brien....   [tags: Personal Narrative Essays]
