Ernest Hemingway was one of them, one of the many american expatriots that came to Paris in the 1920's. They were mostly writers, some artists, all reunited on the left bank, all in search of happiness and inspiration. Hemingway put his sejour in Paris

One of the most unusual parts of the play is, not surprisingly, one of the most important parts. This is Lucky's speech, which is given near the middle of the play. It's importance is signalled not only by its content, but by its style and structure as well. While any other line in the play is important, if for no other reason, just for being there, Lucky's speech is utterly significant. In general, the other lines are short, limiting themselves to a sentence or just a few curt words. While L

The main debate that all critics had over this novel was whether or not Stephen Dedalus was, in fact, James Joyce. Maurice Beebe feels that Joyce, when creating Stephen, used some of his own characteristics but also tried to not make Stephen too much like himself. One way in which “Joyce sought to detach himself from his hero was to depict not just James Joyce, but the universal, archetypal artist.” In other words, Joyce wanted to make Stephen a stereotypical artist. Thus, he had to “omit certa
