Ulysses Relationships Term Paper

… Ulysses

Relationships in Ulysses

To say that Ulysses by James Joyce is complex would be an understatement. Joyce is known for his rich characters and the creation of conflict through tensions in relationships. The relationships that Joyce explores are not always between two people. Sometimes relationships in Joyce's work are with institutions or other entities. Joyce managed to break traditional conventions as far as plot and characters are concerned. However, Joyce gives the reader much insight into how his characters think. The following will explore how Joyce addresses relationships on various levels by exploring the character of Stephen.

Stephen Dedalus, "Kinch" is the young hero of the story. Stephen symbolically represents Telemachus in "The Odyssey." Leopold Bloom would be "Ulysses" in the novel. Stephen is…. [read more]

Relationships Ulysses by James Joyce Term Paper

… The only problem probably is that each is waiting for the other to make a move to rekindle the passion. Molly is willing to come back to her husband, which is evident from the very last line:

then I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes and then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew him down Jo me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes."

Whether they do finally get back together is unclear because Joyce doesn't reveal this to us but Molly's confessions hint at a positive ending…. [read more]

Lord Alfred Tennyson's the Lotos Eaters and Ulysses Term Paper

… Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Two poems by Alfred, Lord Tennyson were derived from Homer, concerning different periods in the life of Ulysses (or Odysseus, in the Greek). "The Lotos-Eaters" refers to a land where this people lived and where Ulysses spent a decade or more idling away his time when he was on his way home from the Trojan War. "Ulysses" considers how the great warrior might have responded to the time of peace following his return from that war and coming after he ejected the suitors and reclaimed his throne.

Homer depicts Ulysses as a man punished for insulting one of the gods. His hero possesses certain civilized qualities that give him a strong aura of humanity in spite of his more violent nature. Ulysses…. [read more]

Homer What Is the Proper Essay

… It is Poseidon who serves as a godly foil for Odysseus, blowing his ship off-course right at the start of the narrative, thus offering Homer a story to tell. After all, Odysseus would have made it home twenty years sooner had Poseidon not interfered with the weather at sea. Homer has nothing but respect for the gods, and especially for Athena, with whom he shares a special bond.

The fact that Homer portrays gods with human characteristics also shows that the gods must essentially respect human beings. Homer does not delve too much into the realms of theology or cosmology, but he does implicate that the gods depend on human beings to maintain the basic order of the universe. This is why Athena appeals to…. [read more]

O Brother, Where Art Thou? Thesis

… The irony of the Coens' career is that, out of the marginalized business of "independent" filmmaking, they have so often striven to re-create such period pieces of the golden age of Hollywood's studios. Although Peter Biskind points to the Coens as an example of the larger symbiotic relationship that exists between "independent" filmmaking and Hollywood studio filmmaking, in the way that independent filmmaking "emerges at the bottom to inject new vitality into the system: the Oliver Stones and Coen Brothers of the 80s, the Quentin Tarantinos and Atom Egoyans of the 90s" (Biskind 429), the fact remains that the Coens seem most influenced by Hollywood product that was not independent in the first place, and represented in many cases the quickest cheapest sort of commercial….

Victorian Period Term Paper

… Journal Exercise 5.1A: Morality Then and Now

The literature of the Victorian Period expressed fascination and fear
with technology and machinery. Thomas Carlyle stated that man's ability to
use tools is all he is in his philosophical work Sartor Resartus. In John
Stuart Mill's On Liberty, the author stresses the idea that the individual
is supreme and sovereign over all else, which addresses the period's fear
that individuals were being replaced by machines. The advent of the
industrial revolution seriously affected religious beliefs. Matthew Arnold
suggested that the period was hovering between two worlds, "one dead" and
"one powerless to be born," according to his Stanzas from the Grand
Chartreuse. One of these worlds is religion and one is technology.
According to Arnold, the Victorian…. [read more]

Molly Bloom Term Paper

… Molly Bloom

How do you characterize Molly Bloom and why? How would you characterize the overall message of the piece?

The title of James Joyce's final chapter of Ulysses, "Penelope" seems bitterly ironic. In Homer's "Odyssey," Penelope was the faithful wife of the hero. But the modern Penelope Molly Bloom is the faithless wife of Leopold Bloom, and she is primarily concerned with her sexual relations with other men rather than her love for her husband. "The central parallel to Homer [in the book] is that Bloom's wife Molly -- like Penelope in Homer -- is being courted by a suitor, the dashing Blazes Boylan. In order to win her back, Bloom must negotiate twelve trials -- his Odyssey" (Barger 2001).

Even in comparison to…. [read more]

Bilateral Relations Term Paper

… Bilateral Relations: For the Better or for the Worse?

The relationship between the Dominican Republic and the United States between the historical period of 1960 and 2000 is a long-standing relationship like a marriage between humans, which can be reported as mutually symbiotic at some times in history, but more often than not, was sycophantic in nature on the part of the Dominican Republic and imperialistic on the part of the United States. This research is concerned with the presentation of how the relationship between the two countries has evolved throughout the centuries; has it been for the better or for the worse? This research should be found useful to readers who are looking to better understand the complexities of an old history of servile…. [read more]

Bilgrami 2001 Thesis

… Bilgrami 2001

What might be the implications of this lack of recognition in a teaching setting?

Many subjects may identify with some characteristic that is not to others what is most salient about them...a kind of self deception or at least a self-myopia," (Bilgrami 2001). In an educational setting, the self-deception that results from lack of recognition of certain aspects of the person's objective identity can have serious consequences on that individual's ability to think critically. Issues related to race, class, religion, gender, and power cannot be discussed openly unless learners are fully aware of how those issues affect them. Learning about history, literature, and any number of other subjects requires perspective and worldview. That perspective will be shaped by the identity of the dominant…. [read more]

Morality Then and Now the Technological Era Essay

… Morality Then and Now

The technological era that we as a society have entered has completely altered the way that morality and proper behavior is viewed and expressed. Before the Internet was as freely used as it is now, there was more control as to what children and teenagers had access to. Now, because of the rapid advancement in the exposure of the Internet, everyone has access to just about anything -- both appropriate and inappropriate. It is this unregulated exposure that has tainted morality. Cultures who are more open about such things as sexuality or who are not so religiously guided, can now influence and expose people who are a bit more conservative. Parents have a harder time explaining to their children what is…. [read more]

Political Framework of EU Thesis

… As a result, European nations looked forward to developing nations such as Asia, Africa and South America for the purchase of these necessities. For developing nations this was an opportunity to become known as suppliers of grist, therefore, they were willing to enter into this trade agreement. However, what European Leaders wanted was more than a simple trade agreement; their aim was to enforce their rules on these nations, making them colonies of the infinite European empire. Therefore, they entered into the agreement after setting out a lot of rules for the dependent nations to follow. As time passed by, these rules made the European leaders indirectly administer the nation, thus the nations became a part of European empire. History reveals that the imperialism is…. [read more]

Aeneid for Appearances Only: The Low Position Essay

… Aeneid

For Appearances Only:

The Low Position of Women in Virgil's Aeneid

Examining the role of women in a work of literature nearly always allows readers to get a glimpse of the social customs of the time period in which the writer composes. In fact, understanding the role of women in a society allows readers to make connections regarding other important aspects of society, in addition to the values of the writer or main characters. The Aeneid is no exception. Because most who read the Aeneid are at least partially unfamiliar with the cultures of both Greece and Rome, examining the role of women in the poem allows others to become more familiar with that culture, in addition to the roles that women played in….

Irish Writers Jonathan Swift, James Joyce Term Paper

… Irish Writers

Jonathan Swift, James Joyce, and John Butler Yeats

It is said that the Irish fascination with words is rooted in the feasting halls of Celtic chieftains where the roving bard, one of the most respected members of society, would be met with great celebration, for he knew all the old stories and family histories (Ireland Pp). When Saint Patrick arrived, he gave the storytelling Irish the greatest treasure they could imagine, the written word (Ireland Pp). Patrick founded some 385 churches and schools where thousands learned to read and write, thus, transforming Ireland from a country with no alphabet to a land of scholars and writers (Ireland Pp). By the end of the fifth century, poems, songs, sagas, and illustrated manuscripts poured forth…. [read more]

Abraham Lincoln From the Ridiculous to the Sublime Term Paper

… Abraham Lincoln: From the Ridiculous to the Sublime

Abraham Lincoln has gone down in history as one of the most endearing presidents of the United States. He was Commander in Chief during the country's most trying times, when brother was pitted against brother, and the entire country was divided in civil war. Lincoln is probably best known for the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed African-Americans from slavery.

Lincoln was born February 12, 1809 in Hardin County, Kentucky, and once wrote that his parents were both born in Virginia, "of undistinguished families, second families, perhaps I should say" (Abraham). His family moved from Kentucky to Indiana when he was eight years old, and a couple of years later his mother died (Abraham). Of Indiana, Lincoln wrote, "it…. [read more]

Odyssey and Aeneid Essay

… Odyssey & Aeneid

Homer's Odyssey is a hallmark for epics everywhere, with features from its hero being present in most main characters of epics to follow. Virgil wrote the Aeneid around the beginning of our era and got inspired for his hero from the Odyssey. Both Ulysses (Odysseus) and Aeneis are presented as they undergo a series of incidents while trying to reach their destination.

The Odyssey begins with Odysseus going home after having conquered Troy. In spite of the fact that over ten years had passed since the fall of Troy, Odysseus didn't manage to get home. Because of his prolonged absence, the people of Ithaca consider him to have died during his journey. Moreover, a mob of mal-intended people have gathered in Odysseus's…. [read more]

Second Reconstructions Term Paper

… This was much less than the $35 billion cost of "an unjust, evil war in Vietnam," which King wanted to end (King 1967). Yet he also opposed violence and insisted that the riots in Watts in 1965 and in Detroit and Newark two years later accomplished nothing for civil rights or the improvement of economic conditions. Nor did he believe that a violent revolution would ever succeed in the United States, given that even the majority of blacks opposed it.

Blacks still live in segregated ghettos with high levels of unemployment and gang violence, while black poverty and unemployment are still at least double the levels of whites, as they always have been. Nor is there any longer a bipartisan consensus in favor of civil…. [read more]

Stephen Dedalus Term Paper

… Joyce

Within James Joyce's Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Ulysses, we find a semiautobiographical rendering of Joyce's fully autobiographical conception of himself, called Stephen Hero. This project, Joyce was writing along with his stories in Dubliners; it was exceptionally long, but held more truly to his understanding of himself than Portrait or Ulysses would do. The hero of these tales, Stephen Dedalus, serves as the focal point of both novels, through his thoughts and actions, and should be viewed as the abridged version of Stephen Hero. Regarding this project, Joyce found that to achieve publication of his central notions surrounding Stephen and himself, he would need to choose aspects of his autobiographical work. Thus, the more factually based autobiography transformed, gradually,…. [read more]

Book 9 Of the Iliad Essay

… Book 9 of the Iliad

"My blood boils when I think it all over, and remember how the son of Atreus treated me with contumely as though I were some vile tramp." (Iliad, IX, 486-488). In Book 9 of the Iliad, Achilles rejects the offers made by three of Agamemnon's ambassadors in an attempt to get him to end his feud with Agamemnon and rejoin the war against Troy, because Achilles feels that Agamemnon has dishonored him. When Agamemnon is discussing his apology to Achilles with his ambassadors, they discuss Achilles' temperament, and agree that Agamemnon's offer to Achilles should be extravagant, because Achilles is known for his having a bad temper and being somewhat stubborn. It is that official offer that Ulysses brings to…. [read more]

Nature in Troilus and Cressida Essay

… This is a wisecrack using "core" to refer to the Greek "kora," which means a crust of bread, as well as a "core" of a lesion. Shakespeare is purposely conflating "botch" (meaning mistake) and a "batch" of bread as well saying that as part of a batch, he was stale. By "nature" he meant genitalia. This double entendre is really saying that Thersites is a wrong, old venereal lesion (Rubinstein, 65). Later, Thersites later curses Patroclus as a "water-flies of nature," which presumably meant feces-eating maggot (line 22, Rubinstein). Then after Patroclus and Ajax stomp off, Thersites rants about Menelaus, calling him "both ox and ass," presumably both mean and stupid. These are all clever uses of Nature as an insult.

Act V, Scene II…. [read more]

Structure and Texture in the Good Soldier and Parade's End by FM Ford Term Paper

… Structure and Texture in Ford's The Good Soldier And Parade's End

As Graham Greene once wrote on the subject of Ford Madox Ford, "No one in our century except James has been more attentive to the craft of letters. He was not only a designer; he was a carpenter: you feel in his work the love of the tools and the love of the material" (Greene 1962, p. 8). In what follows, we intend to explore the ways in which Ford both designed and engineered what are perhaps his two greatest novels, the Good Soldier and Parade's End. Through a rigid analysis of both the formal and textual aspects of Ford's work, we hope to expose those qualities that contributed to Ford's development as one…. [read more]

James Joyce's the Dead Term Paper

… Some critics see different readings possible for the story, depending on whether the reader approaches "The Dead" as the lat story in The Dubliners or as standing on its own. Florence Walzl is one who says that seeing the story as a conclusion means viewing Gabriel's epiphany as "a recognition that he is a dead member of a dead society" (Walzl 424). If the story is read on its own, though, Walzl says "the effect is different: the story seems one of spiritual development and the final vision a redemption" (Walzl 424). In both cases, the final epiphany is directly related to the sudden revelation that comes to Gabriel in terms of his relationship with his wife.

Shelley Anspaugh considers the interactions between Gabriel and…. [read more]

Inner Truth and Outer Term Paper

… If I am a believer and not an atheist, I might say that Woolman puts his human self at God's disposal. In essence he says, 'Whatever I am, I owe to You, I put myself at Your disposal. Your will be done.'

If I am an existentialist I might say, Franklin represents his self in his actions and his life. Self as defined by Webster is "the identity, character, or essential qualities of any person or thing," or "one's own person as distinct from all others." Woolman's essential quality is his Christlikeness and his concern with his inner life. Franklin keeps his inner life largely to himself. His essential identity is his "advancement" and "progress" in the outer world.

Franklin cares for the opinions of…. [read more]

German Foreign Policy Research Paper

… German Foreign Policy

Following World War II, Germany remained ideologically and geographically divided between the two opposing sides of the Cold War, and only after the fall of the Soviet Union did the country reunify and begin to formulate a coherent foreign policy of its own. However, over the last ten years, this foreign policy has often put it at odds with some of its allies (especially those in NATO), and recent events suggest that this rift between Germany and its neighbors and allies will only widen in the future, as economic instability and democratic uprisings in the Middle East threaten to destabilize the relatively fragile relations between countries, especially at a time when national leaders are increasingly thinking of their own country's individual needs….

Philosophy What Did Kierkegaard Essay

… Philosophy

What did Kierkegaard mean when he said religion requires a "leap of faith?"

Kierkegaard believed that faith is the definitive subjective act -- that is, it is irrational, a "leap" beyond all probable rationalization. He believes it to be irrational because faith has nothing to do with ethics or good behavior. The ethical life cannot allow for a leap of faith because of its concept of self-creation and responsible choice.

This kind of higher rationality is way beyond the ethical, which needs rational behavior. Faith is something that puts the individual in relation to something that is higher, which is itself the essence of everything that is ethical. For Kierkegaard, the ethical life is essentially concerned with religion in the social sense, but to…. [read more]

Jean-Luc Godard's Contempt Term Paper

… Kehr writes, "By encouraging her, against her obvious wishes, to go off alone with the producer, he has used his wife's beauty to promote his career" (Kehr 1997). In the time it takes for Camille to get into the car, whatever love she had for her husband has vanished and is communicated in a single glance (Kehr 1997). Camille now feels little more than contempt for Paul, however, he is so caught up in his effort to succeed that he does not notice the change in her, much less the fact that he has infected the relationship with an incurable disease (Kehr 1997).

To Paul defense, he is older than his wife and feels that he needs to ensure her security. Although beautiful, she is…. [read more]

Tourist Behavior Toward Nature-Based Tourism Multiple Chapters

… The primary concept that is a part of ecotourism is that it entails consciousness and admiration of the Mother Nature and the activities based on it (Fennell, 2001, 2008).

Another concept that is a vital part of ecotourism is pertinent to the regional communal groups like contribution (Ross and Wall, 1999), prospective advantages (Honey, 2008) and authorisation (Scheyvens, 2002). The next concept is related to knowledge (Honey, 2002) and such tourism in which people consider themselves accountable (Fennell and Dowling, 2003). Lastly, ecotourism fosters maintainability (Blamey, 2001; Cole and Sinclair, 2002) and preservation (Wood, 2002).

Although various experts have investigated the definition, influence and shortcomings of ecotourism, comparatively less have discovered the viewpoints and behaviours of players dealing with the supply chain connecting a traveller…. [read more]

Portrayed in 'Lady Chatterley's Lover Term Paper

… This is true for all movies including Lady Chatterley's Lover. The movies regularly feed the audience stereotypes concerning race and ethnicity, and make them sound to be true. They have also benefited some people like the gays, who were introduced to Americans by movies. The view given about gays was that they were individuals to be laughed at or pitied. The situation changed from May 26th, 1952 and then the Supreme Court realized that movies were significant as a method for communication of their ideas, while not removing the concept that they are a medium for entertainment. (Film and History)

This change was based on the First Amendment which also protects newspapers, magazines and books. At the same time, this led to a censorship on…. [read more]

Impeachment Evaluations and Reasons for Your Determination Essay

… Impeachment evaluations and reasons for your determination. 1. Which one was the most serious in terms of criminal conduct and why? 2. Which one was the most politically motivated and why? 3. Which one was the most and least damaging to the country as a whole? C. Should President Clinton have been censored instead of impeached? Explain.

To impeach a president: A comparison of the Johnson, Nixon, and Clinton impeachments

Impeachment of the president is an extreme measure only to be undertaken in the most unusual circumstances of abuses of the office. The President, Vice President, "and all other civil officers of the United States, including members of the federal judiciary," can be only removed from their offices if they are found guilty of "treason,….

Ethnic Groups in America Term Paper

… Ethnic Groups in America


Origins / History: The Chinese probably were persecuted as an ethnic culture arriving in America far more than were the Irish and Polish; this is not to say the Polish and Irish avoided discrimination and social bias, but neither of the latter two were actually banned from immigrating to the U.S. As were the Chinese at one point. In fact, the Chinese were officially excluded from entering America (Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882), but they also had earned respect when they served as hard-working low-paid laborers who helped build the first transcontinental railroad in the middle of the 19th Century. But "once the railroads connected the frontier, Westerners had little use for the Chinese" (De Leon 42), and hence the…. [read more]

Epic Literature Women Are Shown Term Paper

… ¶ … epic literature women are shown to be major forces in the relationship between men and between countries. Prove this by using examples such as Helen, Penelope, and Dido.

There is no doubt that most of the ancient epic poems focus on the male characters, their role in politics and war and their evolution throughout the poem.

This is also the case with the Iliad and the Odyssey, where Achilles, Hector or Agamemnon (for the former) and Ulysses (for the latter) are the centre figures around which the story revolves. Nevertheless, it is the women characters of these poems that create the links between characters and who reflect their actions. It is Helen that triggers the conflict and that creates the appropriate premises for…. [read more]
