The Symbolic Naturalist of The Blue Hotel

- The Symbolic Naturalist of The Blue Hotel   This essay considers the perspective of James Trammell Cox as presented in his essay: An Analysis of the Blue Hotel   Cox begins his essay by discussing naturalism and Crane's fictional style. He suggests that Crane's technique "is that of the symbolist rather than the naturalist in that he carefully selects his details not as pieces of evidence in a one-dimensional report on man but as connotatively associated parts of an elaborately contrived symbolic structure." Basically the thrust of Cox's argument is centered around the degree to which Crane displays the characteristics of a naturalist writer....   [tags: Blue Hotel Essays]

Contrasting the Murderers in Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment and Camus' The Stranger

- Central to both The Stranger and Crime and Punishment is a senseless murder, however, the way each murderer feels about his own act of murder is quite different. Meursault in The Stranger has no personal value attached to things he does in life whether it be day-to-day activities or murder. Raskolnikov in Crime and Punishment, on the other hand, feels that in certain cases values of society do not apply, however after the murder realizes that this is not the case for himself. These differences in thought not only provide more insight on the characters individually, but show that although society helps to guides it is up to the individual, based on values and morals, to decide how to live hi...   [tags: compare/contrast, Literary Comparison, Analysis]
