An Environmentalist view of Kentucky and its Natural “Suitors” by Literary Analysis

Abstract

In the book “Divine Right’s Trip”, by Gurney Norman, the author provides a more modern, psychedelic-age epic, where the traditional theme of homecoming, often witnessed in Greek epics like the Odyssey, makes a connection with environmentalism. One reason for the unique combination of these themes is the effect created by a specific appeal for environmental support accompanied with the return of the main character, Divine Right (D.R.), to his small hometown in Eastern Kentucky where coal mining remains the prevalent employer. Upon his homecoming to ...

Dhal Bhat And My Dad’S Pizza: Comfort And Steep Learning Curves In Nepal, Elsa Froelicher 2018 University of Wyoming

Dhal Bhat And My Dad’S Pizza: Comfort And Steep Learning Curves In Nepal, Elsa Froelicher

Honors Theses AY 17/18

Food is central to our lives. We cannot live without it; our bodies need it to function. But food has more meaning than energy to move our muscles, to help us think, or give us vital vitamins and minerals. We relate food to experiences. Traveling to new places almost always involves trying local cuisine or local specialties. We find comfort in food; in greasy, cheesy, gooey, delicious foods. We eat to deal with stress, to celebrate joy, to mourn losses. Holidays are almost always associated with foods. Food is not just a physical need, but also an emotional and psychological ...


Growing Brave: A Feminist Short Story Inspired By Myth, Folklore, And Fairy Tales, Celia Egghart 2018 University of Wyoming

Growing Brave: A Feminist Short Story Inspired By Myth, Folklore, And Fairy Tales, Celia Egghart

Honors Theses AY 17/18

Fairy tales are often deemed as nothing more than “children’s stories” or “old wives’ tales.” With this ideology, stories that are seen as “childlike” or “feminine” are somehow labeled as unimportant or silly. However, these tales, as well as their adaptations, are anything but frivolous and trivial. Fairy tales have the unique power to reflect or change the cultural values of a people and era through their morals and lessons. With this project, I will examine this genre of creative writing and rework classic stories from a feminist perspective to reflect the issues and values of the 21st ...
