Plata O Plomo, Christopher David Rosales 2010 University of Colorado at Boulder

Plata O Plomo, Christopher David Rosales

English Graduate Theses & Dissertations

When Tre rolls through the L.A. gridlock on his motorcycle, a loaded gun in his hand, it’s business as usual scanning the license plates--another hatch on his hit-list and a few more bills in his pocket. The traffic may be the only thing we recognize about this Los Angeles. In the overgrown parks along the freeways, guerillas smoke joints, resting off their last bombing mission. Barefooted kids flit over dirt roads, from barrio to barrio, and spread the gossip like carrier pigeons. “Did you hear who the soldiers kidnapped last night?” And Tre has no way of knowing ...


The Heart Is A Strange Muscle, Laura Browder 2010 University of Richmond

The Heart Is A Strange Muscle, Laura Browder

English Faculty Publications

Rachel’s beeper went off just as her back began growing numb, jammed against the pieces of broken and discarded furniture in the storage room. A second later, Bobby’s went off too. She unwrapped her legs from around his sweaty back, pulled herself up to a sitting position, and groped through the jumble of clothing.


Telling Old Tales Newly : Intertextuality In Young Adult Fiction For Girls, Elisabeth Rose Gruner 2010 University of Richmond

Telling Old Tales Newly : Intertextuality In Young Adult Fiction For Girls, Elisabeth Rose Gruner

English Faculty Publications

In one of the inaugural articles in feminist literary criticism, "Feminism and Fairy Tales," Karen Rowe followed Simon de Beauvoir's lead in claiming that fairy tales structure the consciousness of girls and women, and in a negative way. As Donald Haase has noted, "In Rowe's view, the fairy tale--perhaps precisely because of its 'awesome imaginative power'--had a role to play in cultivating equality among men and women, but it would have to be a rejuvenated fairy tale fully divested of its idealized romantic fantasies" (5). In the years since Rowe's essay first appeared, however, it has ...


“The Base, Cursed Thing”: Panther Attacks, Ecotones, And Antebellum American Fiction, Matthew Sivils 2010 Iowa State University

“The Base, Cursed Thing”: Panther Attacks, Ecotones, And Antebellum American Fiction, Matthew Sivils

English Publications

The panther attack scenes found in the fiction of Charles Brockden Brown (1771-1810), James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851), and Harriet Prescott Spofford (1835-1921) portray these animals as literary monsters indicative of a developing American environmental anxiety. Drawing on a selection of recent critical studies dealing with both antebellum American fiction and ecocriticism, I suggest that these scenes reveal, especially through their depiction of panther attacks in what ecologists now refer to as anthropogenic ecotones (human-made environmental edges), the beginnings of an American cultural recognition of environmental degradation. Ultimately these panther attack scenes prefigure an American environmental ethic, revealing an instructive early ...

Heavier Than It Looks And Other Stories, Matthew Tobias Ray

Theses, Dissertations and Capstones

Heavier Than It Looks and Other Stories is a collection of fiction containing one novella-length story, in six parts, centering on the life of a young man coming to terms with a close friend’s suicide. The remaining stories depict different characters amidst situations unique to each character’s stage in life: childhood in 1930s Appalachia in "The Other Kid In a Candy Store," mourning and violent crime in "Picking A Lock," transcendence in "Pathétique," mid-life changes in "Lester’s Last Melancholy," managing addiction in "Staying Clean," youthful folly in "Just For Fun," and storytelling in "The Taste of a ...
