Behind The Meatball: A Reflection On Italian Cuisine, Lost And Found, Christina DeRay 2015 Seton Hall University

Behind The Meatball: A Reflection On Italian Cuisine, Lost And Found, Christina Deray

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

This thesis is a memoir about the lives of the matriarchs of my family: my grandmothers, Carmina and Marie, but in many other ways the memoir becomes a point of entry for a personal essay that explores the culture of authenticity in American cuisine. As a memoir, I offer a personal history of an original Italian cuisine from my very Italian family— how it was transplanted from the European “boot” to American soil, how it flourished through the lessons Carmina taught my family, and how it got transformed when it hit American. I reflect upon the appearance, after the Second ...


These Are The Stories No One Knows, Brittany Lyons 2015 Dominican University of California

These Are The Stories No One Knows, Brittany Lyons

Scholarly and Creative Works Conference

This collection of poetry uses the perspectives of sidekicks and villains to create different stories and to provide a deeper connection with these often overlooked characters. The narrators of these poems are Maleficent the evil queen in Sleeping Beauty, Grumpy one of the seven dwarfs, Falada the horse of the Goose Girl, and the fairy godmother from Cinderella who becomes the evil queen from Snow White. Through poetry these characters are allowed to share their deeper feelings surrounding the heroes that are familiar to us and to also show their unique personalities. These characters also reveal their inner thoughts on ...

The Last Ice Cube, Robert Courtney 2015 Butler University

The Last Ice Cube, Robert Courtney

Manuscripts

In the very darkest corner, behind the davenport, there sat a little ice cube. Tears were dripping slowly, monotonously, hopelessly from its block-shaped face. The eerie moonlight peeped around the deserted room and revealed the most pitiful expression one could ever witness en the face of an ice cube. And the reason? The little ice cube was dying. Some careless reveler had flipped it out of a glass in one horrifying fling, and there it lay, in a state of inertia, awaiting the hideous death of an ice cube. Slowly, atom by atom, it was disappearing.


After Many A Summer Dies The Swan, J. E. Minnis 2015 Butler University

After Many A Summer Dies The Swan, J. E. Minnis

Manuscripts

For a brilliant satire on humanity, I can think of no better author to turn to than Aldous Huxley. His rhetoric is flawless, his characters unbelievably typical, and his satire tinged with just the right amount of reality to render it plausible. Born in England, Mr. Huxley has no more mercy on his own countrymen than he has on those of other nationalities. His satire is universal and completely nonpartisan.


William, Nancy Hendricks 2015 Butler University

William, Nancy Hendricks

Manuscripts

The gravel roads were just beginning to thaw on that early spring day, and each step we took splashed mud at my boots. Some early robins and some perennial sparrows were doing aerial acrobatics in celebration of the new season. William's eyes, however, were not following the birds' gyrations; nor were mine. While he was staring thoughtfully at the road, I was watching the attitude of his ears--watching because his ears are often indicative of his thoughts. At the time, as though he were mildly tolerant of the situation, they were in a reassuringly lax position, neither upright nor ...


Arthur Guy Funkhouser, Portrait Of A Doctor, Dave Berry 2015 Butler University

Arthur Guy Funkhouser, Portrait Of A Doctor, Dave Berry

Manuscripts

The wind blew across the glazed surface of the frozen lake, intent upon entering a small cabin on the northern shore. After circling through the trees, glistening from the clean, white snow, the howling messenger of Aeolus descended, sending a wintry blast of air through a slightly opened window.

Justice, Patrick J. Mahoney III 2015 Butler University

Justice, Patrick J. Mahoney Iii

Manuscripts

Two sharp knocks. Then the sound of hard heels retreating rapidly away from the solid oak paneled door. Expectancy. Rising from the high-backed chair, Colt in hand, he walked slowly across the pitch black room to the door. Silence.

The Berlin Currency Controversy, Earl Murphy 2015 Butler University

The Berlin Currency Controversy, Earl Murphy

Manuscripts

At present what is dubbed "The Cold War" has reached a particularly frigid state in the former German capital city of Berlin. Few know just what the immediate cause of the Berlin Blockade really is, and fewer still would understand it if they did, for it lies not in the realm of political ideologies but rather in the realm of economics. It is a dispute over the currency of which occupying power shall circulate in the Western sectors of that city.


The Radio "Give Away" Program, Joseph A. O'Nan 2015 Butler University

The Radio "Give Away" Program, Joseph A. O'Nan

Manuscripts

Radio "give away" programs are those productions which offer some type of reward to a participant for his efforts on the program. This person mayor may not be present at the actual broadcast. This type of program is of recent origin, but it is rapidly becoming one of the more outstanding forms of radio entertainment.


An Interpretation Of The Musical Themes In Thomas Mann's Magic Mountain, George Coffin 2015 Butler University

An Interpretation Of The Musical Themes In Thomas Mann's Magic Mountain, George Coffin

Manuscripts

In a symphonic literary work such as Thomas Mann's Magic Mountain, the individual themes which interweave to produce the complex counterpoint of the whole unit can hardly be sufficiently treated in one essay. To avoid such confusion we shall, then, consider only the musical themes and references as they parallel the personality development of Hans Castorp. Through this chronological presentation of references we may observe the evolution of character in musical symbols carefully chosen to express the first simplicity and final complexity of the novel's central character.


A Comparison Of Milton's Treatment Of Death In "Death Of A Fair Infant" And "Marchioness Of Winchester", Barbara Sims 2015 Butler University

A Comparison Of Milton's Treatment Of Death In "Death Of A Fair Infant" And "Marchioness Of Winchester", Barbara Sims

Manuscripts

It is a tribute to Milton's genius to study his delicate line of demarcation between the treatment of death in "Marchioness of Winchester" and "Death of a Fair Infant." In the latter poem, Mi.lton imbues his work with a tone of comfort and hope-a tone which we do not find in the former poem. Of course, we must keep in mind the fact that in "Death of a Fair Infant," Milton was emotionally connected with the deceased, and would naturally inject his lines with a note of personal grief and sympathy for the bereaved. Upon contemplating Milton's ...


Avenge, O Lord, Tom Misch 2015 Butler University

Avenge, O Lord, Tom Misch

Manuscripts

When Milton wrote his great sonnet, "On the Late Massacre in Piedmont," he had just been engaged in one of the most bitter Controversies in his life. In an anonymous pamphlet he had been attacked as a "monster, ugly, huge, bereft of sight," and he answered these charges in even more violent language. After this bitterness had passed, Milton brought forth the eloquent eighteenth sonnet, believed by many critics to be his greatest.


The Setting Of Milton's Eighteenth Sonnet, Quentin West 2015 Butler University

The Setting Of Milton's Eighteenth Sonnet, Quentin West

Manuscripts

...But this sonnet immortalizes an aspect, perhaps only an insignificant aspect of that age; yet its greatness lies less in its subject, which is hardly a universal one, which is, in fact, little more than the angered outburst of a passing moment, than in the splendour and rolling grandeur of its words. Who can show a finer example of "emotion recollected in tranquility?"


What We Get From Reading Great Books, Frank W. Slupesky 2015 Butler University

What We Get From Reading Great Books, Frank W. Slupesky

Manuscripts

The term "Great Books" as used in this article refers in general to the classics on the lists compiled by Robert Hutchins and Mortimer Adler of the University of Chicago, Stringfellow Barr of St. John's College, and John Erskine of Columbia University, with the exception of the books which fall into the categories of the exact sciences and belles-Iettres. Those surviving this subtraction come under the broad terms of philosophy and social science, and it is just these Great Books which this article considers. -
