    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…

    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…

    The book drew a lot of attention from the audience. Before Ulysses ever came out, people were having a strong debate about the novel. It was even banned for years in France.

However, American and British readers dealt with the bootlegged version of the novel. New York Customs Agents seized copies of the book that was sent to Random House. In 1934,…

    The story starts out by an introduction of an eighty year old women under doctor supervision. Granny’s arrogant and didactic tone towards the doctor implies to the readers that there is something wrong, maybe she is too old and her demise may be near. The author’s use of point of view, symbolism, suspense, time diversion within a stream of consciousness, and satire makes the story guessing and totally interesting for the reader. The rising action takes place at the introduction of the story and…

    Throughout his short story “A Little Cloud,” James Joyce considers the ramifications of remaining sedentary in Dublin through his characters Little Chandler and Ignatius Gallaher. That Little Chandler and Gallaher seem so antithetical, despite their proximity and similar upbringings, invites the reader to question whether Joyce intends to insinuate that success is only possible outside of Dublin, and that ambition and Celtic nationalism are incongruous. Having left Ireland at twenty years old,…
