7 June 2007 Professor Bruce Bassoff ENG 4224-100 Study Questions #3 The first paragraph of “Two Gallants” is beautifully constructed with vivid imagery, alliteration, and repetition. Joyce emphasizes the warm evening filled with warm air providing the reader with a feeling of the Sunday afternoon in August. “The streets, shuttered for the repose of Sunday…” and the “unchanging unceasing murmur” of the “living texture” of the streets (p.43) all are examples of the alliteration Joyce employs in the paragraph. The paragraph is so beautifully written, it seems like it is a piece of prose fiction or almost like an introduction to a paragraph in a romance novel. Lenehan’s desired to learn about Corley’s mission with the “slavey” because he could have possibly been privy to the fact that Corley’s meeting would be lucrative as well as sexual. Although it is also apparent that Lenehan lives somewhat through Corley’s relations with women and assumes the role of the “disciple”(p.55).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
