The Poet's Corpus: Memory And Monumentality In Wilfred Owen's "The Show", Charles Hunter Joplin 2016 The University of Southern Mississippi

The Poet's Corpus: Memory And Monumentality In Wilfred Owen's "The Show", Charles Hunter Joplin

Master's Theses

Wilfred Owen is widely recognized to be the greatest English “trench poet” of the First World War. His posthumously published war poems sculpt a nightmarish vision of trench warfare, one which enables Western audiences to consider the suffering of the English soldiers and the brutality of modern warfare nearly a century after the armistice. However, critical readings of Owen’s canonized corpus, including “The Show” (1917, 1918), only focus on their hellish imagery. I will add to these readings by demonstrating that “The Show” is primarily concerned with the limitations of lyric poetry, the monumentality of poetic composition, and the ...

Who’S Afraid Of The Big, Bad Uktena Monster? Subject Cataloging For Images, Karen L. Kessel M.A.

VRA Bulletin

This article describes the difference between cataloging images and cataloging books, the obstacles to including subject data in image cataloging records and how these obstacles can be overcome to make image collections more accessible. I call for participants to help create a subject authority reference resource for non-Western art. This article is an expanded and revised version of a presentation for the 2016 Joint ARLIS/VRA conference in Seattle.

Italian Bookbinding And Restoration, Emily Erin Purcell 2016 University of South Carolina - Columbia

Italian Bookbinding And Restoration, Emily Erin Purcell

Theses and Dissertations

Florence, Italy is a hub for art and literature. These two disciplines come together in the tradition of bookbinding, which is alive and well in Florence. A city that appreciates its own rich culture, Florence maintains many traditional practices and crafts, such as bookbinding and metalworking. The Florentines preserve more than just practices, though. The numerous museums in Florence work to physically protect and store pieces of art, artifacts, and documents. All of this preservation was challenged in 1966, with the flood of Florence’s Arno River. The flood destroyed countless manuscripts, books, and pieces of art. With this devastation ...

As Yet Uncertain: A Portrait In Procession, Thomas Richard Helmers 2016 University of Iowa

As Yet Uncertain: A Portrait In Procession, Thomas Richard Helmers

Theses and Dissertations

As Yet Uncertain: A Portrait in Procession is an installation of prints featuring a combination of image and text. Drawing inspiration from various depictions of the grotesque in art and literature, the project examines the grotesque form, both in body and mind. As Yet Uncertain: A Portrait in Procession observes how the grotesque—a body that is always in the act of becoming—relates to uncertainties and ambivalence in identity and humanity.


By Measure Of, Kristen A. Hartman 2016 University of Iowa

By Measure Of, Kristen A. Hartman

Theses and Dissertations

A limited variable editioned artist book, by measure of depicts an allegorical conversation between medieval author Christine de Pizan and a contemporary woman. It is, in essence, an exploration of edges in which the characters examine the parameters of identity, both personally and societally designated–how to define/re-define/emphasize/blur them, and what happens in the space where they meet.


Drawing From The Book Of Nature, Amy Richard 2016 University of Iowa

Drawing From The Book Of Nature, Amy Richard

Theses and Dissertations

My work is a response to the miraculous energy exhibited in nature, an invisible power that creates exquisite structures and designs in every living thing around us only to destroy them and begin again. Specifically, it is inspired by a lifelong fascination with the detritus left behind. Shimmering maple tree seeds, decaying oak leaves, or delicate marine relics awash on the beach are tangible (and daily) reminders that life is precious and fleeting, but also hopeful as that energy is always transformed into something new.

The drawings, pulp prints and sculptures produced for my thesis are futher animated by the ...


Caput Mortuum, David Glenn Rollins 2016 University of Iowa

Caput Mortuum, David Glenn Rollins

Theses and Dissertations

Caput Mortuum is a visual representation of my own spiritual quest for enlightenment using alchemy. Ancient alchemists sought perfection in all things and visualized a personal spiritual hierarchy that resided within all physical matter. The lowest tier of this scale represents the dull and lifeless material while the highest could touch the Divine. Reshaping the material world revealed the ordinary item's latent potential, aiding in its own transformation as well as the alchemist's into more perfect beings.

Inspired by this idea, I seek to bring ultimate perfection to every piece I create. By manipulating and altering books and ...

Zero Street, Keith Graham 2016 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Zero Street, Keith Graham

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, School of Art, Art History and Design

“It becomes oppressive when important events, important changes, can’t break through to the surface of life and are continually unable to fulfill themselves. The still invisible and uncrystallized fact that is to be realized in the future is already growing, swelling, beginning to push through into a preexisting reality, which, however, doesn’t want to yield. It gets tighter and tighter, and therefore more and more suffocating. The lack of air increases our feeling of helplessness. We watch the gathering of the clouds and wait for a voice to speak from them, reading us the inexorable verdict of fate ...


We Are Standing In The Nick Of Time: Translative Relevance In Anne Carson's "Antigonick", Michelle Alonso 2016 Florida International University

We Are Standing In The Nick Of Time: Translative Relevance In Anne Carson's "Antigonick", Michelle Alonso

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The complicated issues surrounding translation studies have seen growing attention in recent years from scholars and academics that want to make it a discipline and not a minor branch of another field, such as linguistics or comparative literature. Writ large with Antigonick, Carson showcases the recent Western push towards translation studies in the American academy. By offering up a text that is chaotic in its presentation, she bypasses the rigid idea of univocality. By giving the text discordant images, she betrays the failed efficacy of sign and signification, and by choosing a text to be performed and mutually participated in ...

In dieser wird die Geschichte der Buchbinderei W. Collin sowie deren führende Persönlichkeiten und Arbeiten der Firma beschrieben und abgebildet.

Letzteres gilt besonders für die "normalen" Handwerklichen- und Verlagsarbeiten für die in der Literatur keine Beschreibungen vorlagen.

Diese Geschichte der Collins und die folgende Bibliographie der Schriften von Ernst Collin beansprucht nicht vollständig zu sein, vor allem, weil sie aus der Ferne mittels digitalisierten Sammlungen, Fernleihe und angekauften Büchern zusammengestellt wurde. Sie will einen Anfang machen und darüber hinaus einen Einblick ...
