LeBron James and Michael Jordan

- Comparing LeBron James and Michael Jordan is like comparing apples and oranges. It just isn’t a fair comparison. There are too many differences. There are too many variables. There are too many fallacies that are involved to make a fair assessment to determine who the greatest basketball player of all time is. Unfortunately the comparison is being made seemingly every day, and the article by Mr. Mathis is full of fallacious material. His extreme uses of exaggeration and card stacking, along with many harsh examples of hasty generalizations, makes a claim that Michael Jordan is and always will be the greatest player to play basketball....   [tags: NBA, basketball, Mathis, comparison]

Analysis of James Joyce's Araby

- Even though James Joyce’s short story Araby could be identified as a simple love story which ultimately ends up ending in failure, it is clear that the work discusses much more than the ideas of love and failure. Through the lens of a young man who has become immersed in a culture with a belief set derived from the concepts of materialism and capitalism, the reader experiences a unique journey of a poor, disillusioned human being. While love might be seen as one of the most powerful emotions felt by man, it is clear that love’s intentions can become corrupt, driven off the rightful path by a loss of reality....   [tags: Araby Essays]

Gargano argues convincingly that the Henry James's novel, Washington Square, revolves around the emotional, psychological, and spiritual development of Catherine Sloper. With one small exception, Gargano makes his case so persuasively that it seems hard to believe that there could be any other view of Catherine and her role in the book. Yet, Gargano asserts that James scholars before him have persistently focused elsewhere leaving Catherine to be categorized much the same way her father characterizes her as dull and listless (Gargano 355,...   [tags: Henry James Washington Square]

- From James Joyce's Stephen Hero to "After The Race" - Blending Narrator and Character James Joyce's fragment of a novel, Stephen Hero, leaves the reader little room to interpret the text for themselves. The work lacks the narrative distance that Joyce achieves in his later works. Dubliners, a work Joyce was writing concurrently, seemingly employs a drastically different voice. A voice which leaves the reader room to make judgments of their own.

William James 's Article Review
