Joyce could not bring himself to use the word ‘love;’ when Nora asked him if he loved her he could only say that he "was very fond of her, desired her, admired and honored her, and wished to secure her happiness in every way; and if these elements were what is called love then perhaps his affection for her was a kind of love" (Ellmann 6)....   [tags: Dubliners]

Comparing the Women in Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and Ulysses - Characterization of Women in Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and Ulysses   Joyce's depiction of women is characterized by a high degree of literary self-consciousness, perhaps even more so than in the rest of his work.

In Dubliners, Joyce utilizes a clichéd story of doomed love ending in death-physical or spiritual-in "A Painful Case" and "The Dead." The former holds far more to these conventions and can be read as a pre...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]
