  • The Odyssey Comparison Essay

    The scenario can be seen used in the movie at the scene when Ulysses and his men find themselves near a lake, or stream where they meet three beautiful women with enchanting voices. Like the Odyssey these women or “singing sirens” lured them for the worse, for instance, Pete was turned in for a reward, as for Odysseus’s men were being lured to death. This plot is likely used as another obstacle or adventure of Ulysses. Another plot that’s similar is the idea that the main character is assumed dead. In the Odyssey everyone assumed Odysseus was dead because it took him a while to return home. Again, like Odysseus, Ulysses was assumed dead too. However, unlike Odysseus, the writers used it against the main character or Ulysses. They made his wife purposely say he was dead because he was away serving time in jail, and didn’t like their children and others to know. In conclusion, the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou is a modern narrative of the book, “The Odyssey.” We can see both share similar characters, themes, and plots as compare the following. Although “The Odyssey” isn’t told exactly the same way, we can still see and understand…

  • A Modest Proposal And Ulysses Comparison

    may normally not see. A Modest Proposal written by Jonathan Swift in 1729 and Ulysses written by Alfred Lord Tennyson in 1833 are prime examples of the passion that can be conveyed with the word. Swift and Tennyson write from a vastly different spectrum of emotion. Even with both authors taking a passive stance on their subjects, Swift’s A Modest Proposal is a satirical essay that conveys a sadness and anger at the station gap and poverty in 1700’s Ireland while Tennyson portrays the…

  • The Dual Nature Of David Copperfield

    Kierkegaard statement that “Man lives forward and understands backward”, used as an epigraph by Robert L Patten in his essay on David Copperfield, goes someway towards demonstrating the dual nature of the text – both as a story of a boy progressing through life, and simultaneously as the story of a writer considering his early life. However, he nature of the bildungsroman in David Copperfield is distorted further by a second level of fictionalization: the nature of David himself as narrator and…

  • As I Lay Dying Reflection

    In As I Lay Dying, Faulkner creates a frantic, and conceited world with very little room for success. As the book progressed through the journey of burying Addie, the scene of despair never changes. While a satisfying conclusion brings in happiness to the readers, Faulkner’s unsatisfactory endings of the Bundrens delivers pain and misery to the readers, and that may well be what the mood he wants the audience to feel. Through the use of unexpected events, Faulkner cultivates a realistic…
