Okay, I've gotta write a theory paper about James Joyce; we've been reading Dubliners.
Now, I haven't got a fragging clue what to write about.

Suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

*sigh* Now this is a tough one to explain...
it's essentially a summary of the literature, and some sort of discussion that will increase the reader's theoretical knowledge of the subject. So, expanding on some underlying theme, or something. I just don't know what the hell to do....

not a good thing to do iltos.schools will FAIL YOU if you cite wikipedia as your source of info in a topic as anyone with a account can edit the information so its not 100% correct so schools don't credit it.

i didn't know that, lex, thanks....lotta food for thought in the article i saw there, tho....some of the links are off site, too....

PCG seems like a smart one...i'm sure he'll figure something out (assuming he's actually read the stories ;) )

and you did......right, PCG? :D

You are 100% correct. Some Wikipedia entries are objective, some aren't. It's a pretty big gamble, so there's no real credibility.
Plus, again, any uninformed monkey can enter something.

Oh, and I did read it, and I figured something out. Got it done, handed it in. Still a little cranked from the vic/coffee combo that kept me running all night. Now I gotta start on my Brave New World paper, or research for my school censorship paper.
I hate being me. :p

Wow, I love "Dubliners". My favorite stories were "Eveline" and "The Dead" (which was made in to a beautiful movie by John Huston), I'll have to read it again.

What theory did you write about? I hated having to write papers, that's why I majored in accounting. :p
