    Do any of these stories(or which two) share the same theme/conflict?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by BigJ, May 7, 2009.

    I was going to start reading some short stories, two as a matter of fact, by two different writers from a specific list. James Joyce, E.A. Poe, Washington Irving, Nathaniel Hawthorn, James Baldin, Alice Walker, William Faulkner, Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, Stephen Crane, John Updike, Bret Hart, Sarah Orne Jewett and Anton Chekov. It's for my english class, I'm going to be doing a report on them soon so why not just start now you know?

    I have a bunch of names already from some of those guys but I just need some help since you guys might've read them already, can anyone tell me 2 of these which share the same theme/conflict?

    James Joyce:
    Araby
    The Sisters
    Eveline
    A Little Cloud
    Counterparts
    Clay
    The Dead

    Stephen Crane:
    An Experiment in Misery
    The Open Boat
    The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky
    The Blue Hotel
    The Little Regiment
    The Price of the Harness
    A Detail
    A Mystery of Heroism
    A Gray Sleeve
    The Pace Of Youth
    Three Miraculous Soldiers
    One Dash-Horses
    The Mesmeric Mountain

    Nathaniel Hawthorn:
    My Kinsman, Major Molineux
    Young Goodman Brown
    The Birth-mark
    Rappaccini’s Daughter
    The Minister’s Black Veil
    The May-Pole of Merry Mount
    The Snow-Image
    Lady Eleanore's Mantle
    Alice Doan's Appeal
    Ethan Brand
    Wakefield
    The Gentle Boy
    Endicott and the Red Cross
    Feathertop
    The Gray Champion
    The Great Carbuncle
    The Great Stone Face
    The Ambitious Guest
    The Wives of the Dead

    Thanks a lot.

    Just started reading some actually, and Araby and Eveline by James Joyce seem to share a common theme. I had already read Eveline, currently in the middle of Araby.

    I havn't read any of these but my english course at uni this semester requires us to do something similar with 10-12 different works, looking at how they relate, how they differ, what themes they share, how they deal with them, etc...
    You can find a way to connect virtually any work with any other, and while some will be easier than others, the connections are always there if you look hard.

    We will not do your homework for you. What you are asking for is a major portion of your assignment.
