  • Araby By James Joyce - 400 words

Furthermore, he feels ignored by the houses on his street. Their "brown imperturbable faces make him ...

  • Dubliners By James Joyce - 1,479 words
    Dubliners By James Joyce James Joyce's Dubliners was written in 1914 right at the onset of World War I breaking out in Europe. It is a journey through the stages of life itself: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, public life and finally death. Each one of the stories in the novel fall into one of these stages. "After the Race" falls into the adolescence aspect of the book. It does this because the characters have not yet grown up. Although they are adults they are still immature. Jimmy is easily fooled into gambling away all of his money. He never regretted it. He was actually happy that Routh won the game and took everyone's money. Because of actions like this they are very carefree about h ...

They drank Ireland, England, France, Hungary, the United States of America. Jimmy mad a speech, a long speech, Villona saying Hear! hear! whenever there was a pause. There was a great clapping of hands when he sat down. It must have been a good speech."19 In this sequence of passages it seems as if the characters move from childhood to adulthood in an instance.

Refutation Marie Mitchell Olesen Urbanski reflects on the parallels between a literary work and biblical suggestions in her essay Existential Allegory: Joyce Carol Oates Where Are You Going? Where Have You Been? (Studies in Short Fiction, 1978.) In her criticism, she compares the story of Connies passive submission to Arnold Friend with the seduction of Eve by the Devil in the biblical myth. She uses Oates descriptions of Arnold friend to prove that he is the devil and that Connie is an innocent victim. Urbanski does a convincing job of comparing the story of Connie and Arnold to the story of Eve ...

It is through Stephen that we see his world, and it is his development from sensitive child to rebellious young man that forms the plot of the novel. There are many Stephens, often contradictory. He is fearful yet bold, insecure yet proud, lonely and at the same time afraid of love. One Stephen is a romantic who daydreams of swashbuckling heroes and virginal heroines. The other is a realist at home on Dublin's most sordid streets. One Stephen is too shy to kiss the young lady he yearns for. The other readily turns to prostitu ...
