The invention of the Human

- The Invention of the Human In his recent book, Shakespeare: The Invention of the Human (1998), Harold Bloom argues that Shakespeare’s characters provide the full measure of his continuing legacy. Shakespeare, Bloom maintains, created self-conscious characters who breathe life. Shakespeare’s characters are so alive, possess such "interiority," that they catch themselves looking at themselves. This quality is the essence of becoming human—to know we know, to be aware we are aware, to sense our own presence on the stage of life....   [tags: Shakespeare Literature Papers]

The Role of Loneliness in James Joyce's Ulysses

- The Role of Loneliness in James Joyce's Ulysses Have you ever had one of those days when the world seems cold and unfeeling. Where the people that surround you are far away and uncaring.

Literary and Character Analysis of Ulysses by James Joyce, Specifically Episode 18: Penelope

- ... Molly is far from perfect, which is precisely what makes her human.

Rhetorical Analysis Of. Eliot 's ' The Metaphysical Poets '

- T.S. Eliot, in his The Metaphysical Poets, claims that it is a pity the poets since the seventeenth century have experienced a “dissociation of sensibility”, from which they have never recovered (Eliot 64). For Eliot, poetry is a union of opposites, the reconciliation of which needs a unified sensibility. By this sensibility, a poet can amalgamate desperate experiences, fuse into a single whole the varied and disparate, and synthesize the sensuous and the intellectual. This synthesis thus enables poetry to be widely read because humans are mentally chaotic....   [tags: T. S. Eliot, Poetry]

Theme of Motherhood in James Joyce's Ulysses

- James Joyce structured Ulysses to correspond with events in Homer's Odyssey.

This interpretation of the relationship between Bloom and Stephen, however, does not account for a significant theme of Ulysses, that of motherhood. Despite the idea that Bloom is a father looking for a son and that Stephen is a son looking for a father, the desires of both of these characters go beyond that of a father and son relationship....   [tags: Joyce Ulysses Essays]
