Man and Nature in Stephen Crane's The Blue Hotel and The Open Boat

- Man and Nature in The Blue Hotel and The Open Boat      Stephen Crane uses a massive, ominous stove, sprawled out in a tiny room and burning with "god-like violence," as a principal metaphor to communicate his interpretation of the world. Full of nearly restrained energy, the torrid stove is a symbol of the burning, potentially eruptive earth to which humans "cling" and of which they are a part. As a literary naturalist, Crane interpreted reality from a Darwinian perspective, and saw the earth driven by adamant natural laws, violent and powerful laws which are often hostile to humans and their societies, and he conceived of humans as accidents, inhabiting a harsh, irrational, dan...   [tags: Blue Hotel Essays]

Catcher in the Rye Essay: Themes of Society and Growing Up

- Themes of Society and Growing Up in The Catcher in the Rye      In reading J.D. Salinger's novel, The Catcher in the Rye, one is compelled to have a very strong reaction to the contents of the book.  Whether that reaction is negative or positive, it is unquestionable that the reader will give the novel a second thought after reading it.  There could be many reasons why this novel has such an impact on the readers.  It may be the use of Salinger's catchy slang phrases, bitingly sarcastic and usually negative, grabbing the attention of the reader.  Another possibility is Holden, the novel's subject and lead character.  "He describes everything as 'phony', is constantly in search of sincerit...   [tags: Catcher Rye Essays]

Considering the Praises and Criticisms of The Catcher in the Rye

- Considering the Praises and Criticisms of The Catcher in the Rye   Since its publication in 1951, J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye has served as a firestorm for controversy and debate. Critics have argued the moral issues raised by the book and the context in which it is presented. Some have argued that Salinger's tale of the human condition is fascinating and enlightening, yet incredibly depressing. The psychological battles of the novel's main character, Holden Caulfield, serve as the basis for critical argument....   [tags: Catcher Rye Essays]

Facing the Dark Truth in Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness

- Facing the Dark Truth in Heart of Darkness Conrad’s Heart of Darkness has two major components: a candid look at the reality of imperialism, particularly in the Belgian Congo, and an exploration into the darkest depths of human existence. One symbolically dense part of the work occurs when Marlow and company are attacked on their journey into the 'heart of darkness' and towards Kurtz. The attack begins suddenly and each of the members of the company are forced to deal with this life intrusion in the way they see fit....   [tags: Heart Darkness essays]

The Character of Molly Bloom in James Joyce's Ulysses

- The Character of Molly Bloom in Ulysses   In James Joyce's Ulysses, the character of Molly Bloom appears significantly only twice in the entire span of the novel. She appears for the first time in the episode "Calypso," then we do not hear from her again until the very end, in her own words, in "Penelope." Yet in these two instances, Joyce paints a very affectionate, lighthearted and humorous portrait of Molly Bloom -- perhaps not a complete rendition, but a substantial one, with enough colors and lines to sketch the person adequately....   [tags: Joyce Ulysses Essays]

Prologue to King Lear - The Enigma of Shakespeare

- Prologue to King Lear - The Enigma of Shakespeare     Only a small percentage of the plays (some seven hundred) written during the Golden Age of Elizabethan drama (1590-1610) survive into print (Nolan 30).  Popular drama in the 1580s existed as no more than the street professions of clowns and jugglers performing the occasional dramatic interlude (Nolan 35).  As with the "bohemian" and "hippie" youth movements in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and other American cities during the sixties, bands of reckless youth with working-class and college educations invaded the London urban underworld and street culture in the latter half of the sixteenth century, living mostly by their ow...   [tags: King Lear essays]

Female Sexuality & Desire in Chopin's The Storm

- Female Sexuality & Desire in Chopin's The Storm           In Kate Chopin's time traditional patriarchal notions about women and sexuality deemed sexual passion a negligible, even improper, aspect of women's lives. Yet Chopin boldly addresses a woman's sexual desire in her short story "The Storm". This story shockingly details a torrid extramarital sexual encounter between Calixta and Alcee` in the midst of a raging storm. While this story line could have been presented in a traditional light, perhaps as a lesson about the evils of uninhibited female sexuality, Chopin maintains a non-judgmental stance by refraining from moralizing about the sanctity of marriage or impropriety of Calixta's...   [tags: Chopin Storm Essays]

The Poetry of Kingsley Amis and Philip Larkin

- The Poetry of Kingsley Amis and Philip Larkin  In reading poetry, from many different genres, its seems that politically motivated verse seems to dominate, next to love that is. It also seems that poets have a desire to live in a different time, a different place. No one ever seems to be content with the condition of their world, yet, I suppose that is in the nature of humans. We all want something better or something from the past that we can't have. Wither it be the simplicity, the passion, the technology that we don't have, the peace that once was or the greatness that has long been gone, poets that are political in nature suggest a very personal, yet pervading utopia....   [tags: Biography Biographies Essays]

The Path into Madness in The Yellow Wallpaper

A patient who was poor and ill-educated and exhibiting signs of mental disorder was institutionalized -- ala Bedlam. The patient who was rich, educated, and/or from a "good family" was called eccentric and given a prescription for complete mental rest and controlled physical exercise combined with the consumption of phosphorus enriched tonics....   [tags: Yellow Wallpaper essays]

Comparing and Contrasting the Men of Jane Eyre

- Comparing and Contrasting the Men of Jane Eyre        Love and companionship means different things to different people. Sometimes one searches for it in a person much like himself; a mate who upholds their own values and thinks the same thoughts. Other times, people yearn for someone with fresh ideas and an opposite personality to bring new emotions to his life. But in either case, the person that sometimes ends up being the mate one is attracted to is not always a choice that is conventionally upheld by society or perfect in every way....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Students Should Study Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

- Mark Twain published what scholars still consider one of the greatest American literary works in 1885, and in that same year it suffered its first banning (Zwick). “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is essential to the understanding of the American soul,” Victor Doyno states on the jacket of Random House’s comprehensive edition of the novel. If Huckleberry Finn is so indispensable, then its having been opposed from the beginning of its life seems more than a little surprising. At first, the strife was caused by many objecting to the friendship between Huckleberry Finn, the white protagonist, and Jim, an escaped African American slave, in addition to the grammar upon which many critics of the ti...   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Essays]

Delusions of Grandeur – My Summer in Greece

- Delusions of Grandeur – My Summer in Greece It is the lawlessness of Greece that attracts both travelers and outcasts. They arrive on ferry boats with the eagerness of immigrants, drunk with notions of escape and pleasure. This hedonistic lure of the Greek islands is far removed from the academic splendor of mainland Europe. In myth, Greece is a land ruled by the selfish whimsy of the gods, and this climate of self-indulgence blows across the Ionian island of Corfu like a frolicking wind. Teetering, as it does, on the far edge of western civilization, Corfu presents itself as a haven or a refuge, depending on one’s orientation as traveler or derelict....   [tags: Personal Narrative]

Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Birthmark: Understanding The Birthmark

- The story’s tone is one of romantic controversy, a dilemma at a high level of existence.  The scientist’s love for his craft competes very intensively with his newfound love for his wife.  It is also very psychological, strictly dealing with the raw mind of its subjects as if the ominous narrator told the story from inside their mind, rather than observe it from the outside.  He describes the processes that one may take to reach a certain degree of knowledge and to find the elixir of life, which is described in this story as the ultimate goal of the scientific community.  Also, the narrator is very opinionated about events in the story.              Georgiana is a fine wife, and a seemin...   [tags: Birthmark Essays]
