The Gamer, Heather Cook

Dissertations, Theses and Capstone Projects

We open at Fletcher's Creek High with Drew Montgomery, a boy of many faces and friends, popular, athletic, and handsome. He wants to go to college, but his family is poor. Travis, his older brother, is tan, tall, and attractive and is a super senior. He wants to go to college too.

This is their chance. They enter the tournament as a ...


A.L. Burruss: The Life Of A Georgia Politician And A Man To Trust, Margaret Walters 2011 Kennesaw State University

A.L. Burruss: The Life Of A Georgia Politician And A Man To Trust, Margaret Walters

KSU Press Legacy Project

A. L. Burruss was an extraordinary, compassionate, self-effacing, and personable man. He was the eldest of eleven children and son of a painter and carpenter whose family moved to Smyrna, Georgia in the 1930s. After high school, the Navy trained him as a refrigeration machinist and the imaginative and hard-working Burruss used his skills to start a refrigeration business. Eventually Burruss bought out one of his clients-a partner with Tim Top Poultry in Marietta, Georgia-and helped the company to become immensely successful. Despite his prosperity, Burruss ran for political office as "a way to help others" and achieved political prominence ...

That’S The Beauty Of It, Or, Why John Ashbery Is Not A Painter, Clark Lunberry 2011 University of North Florida

That’S The Beauty Of It, Or, Why John Ashbery Is Not A Painter, Clark Lunberry

English Faculty Publications

The poet John Ashbery lived in Paris from roughly 1955 to 1965. It was during this period that Ashbery began writing art reviews, often examining the work of various Americans also living in Paris at this time. Among the many painters Ashbery was to review and publish about, one was the Chicago-born, Paris-based abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell and an exhibition of hers at a Paris gallery in 1964. In this essay I examine the early, more ““abstract”” poetry that Ashbery was developing during this period, thinking about it alongside the paintings of Mitchell (and, in particular, his writings about them ...


The Ethics Of Ekphrasis: The Turn To Responsible Rhetoric In Mid-Twentieth Century American Poetry, Joshua Scott Steffey 2011 Marquette University

The Ethics Of Ekphrasis: The Turn To Responsible Rhetoric In Mid-Twentieth Century American Poetry, Joshua Scott Steffey

Dissertations (2009 -)

In this dissertation, I argue that poets of the late modernist period were engaged in an effort to reevaluate the early modernist aesthetics of autonomy and to redirect poetry to the ethical problems faced by a world torn by war, genocidal politics, and violent cultural exclusions predicated on race and other arbitrary markers of identity. In particular, I focus on how prominent mid-century American or somewhat Americanized poets--Stevens, Auden, Jarrell, and Bishop--deploy rhetorical strategies associated with ekphrasis to meet these ethical crises. Each of these late modernist, formalist poets makes a strategic turn toward a self-critical poetry in order to ...

Something To Hang My Life On: The Health Benefits Of Writing Poetry For People With Serious Illnesses, Carolyn Rickett, Cedric Greive, Jill Gordon

Arts Papers and Journal Articles

Objective: We aimed to explore the effect of a poetry writing program for people who had experienced a serious illness.

Each group met weekly for 2 hours for 8 weeks. The second group was wait-listed to enable comparison between the two groups. We used the Kessler-10, a measure of wellbeing, before and after the workshops and also interviewed the participants at these times.

Results: Participants responded enthusiastically and each group demonstrated an increase in wellbeing ...

Ordinary Explorations, Amelia M. Endo 2011 Union College - Schenectady, NY

Ordinary Explorations, Amelia M. Endo

Honors Theses

In her poem “Poetry” Marianne Moore gracefully states the physical reactions people experience as a result of reading poetry, such as eyes dilating and hair rising. Moore asserts, “these things are important not because a/ high‐sounding interpretation can be put upon them but because/ they are/ useful”. For this reason, I not only read but also create poetry. I wrote this collection of poems intending to trigger reactions from my readers that would be “useful” to them. I decided that the most tactful way to do so was to write about my own personal experiences. Inspired by notable poets ...


The Girl In The Postfeminist World: Rethinking The Impact Of Chick-Lit Fiction, Sarah T. O'Connor 2011 Union College - Schenectady, NY

The Girl In The Postfeminist World: Rethinking The Impact Of Chick-Lit Fiction, Sarah T. O'Connor

Honors Theses

This thesis discusses “chick-lit” series in relation to popular culture, adolescent development, and feminist theory. The role of the female in the United States is currently dominated by both neo-liberal and conservative postfeminist ideology. Postfeminism advocates female empowerment via consumption, sexual attractiveness and physical beauty, while at the same time valorizing passive femininity and the roles of wife and mother. Chick-lit fiction provides a means by which postfeminist messages can be examined as they are presented to adolescent girl audiences, and reveals that the influence of this discourse over female subjectivity is inherently patriarchal. As a genre, chick lit is ...


The Political Properties: Pro- And Anti-Augustan Readings Of Propertius Book Four, Matthew Angelosanto 2011 Union College - Schenectady, NY

The Political Properties: Pro- And Anti-Augustan Readings Of Propertius Book Four, Matthew Angelosanto

Honors Theses

Propertius was a Roman elegist writing during the early years of Augustus’ reign as emperor. His fourth and final book of elegies has long confounded scholars due to its drastic shift in subject matter from love elegy to aetiology. So, too, did the poet’s political stance seem to change: vehemently anti-Augustus in his earlier books, a number of poems in his fourth seem to extol both the sociopolitical climate of Augustan Rome as well as the emperor himself. But should we take the poet’s words at face value? In light of his inexplicable change in political allegiance, this ...

La Poética Del Silencio Como Centro Gnóstico En María Zambrano Y José Ángel Valente, Marta del Pozo 2011 University of Massachusetts, Amherst

La Poética Del Silencio Como Centro Gnóstico En María Zambrano Y José Ángel Valente, Marta Del Pozo

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

María Zambrano’s philosophy and José Ángel Valente’s poetics share a common language: silence. For both, silence emerges as the central locus of the paradox of the knowledge of the unknown. This article aims both at pointing out the gnostic function of silence as stated in their own writings as well as at establishing the connections between the endless ontological possibilities of Logos and silence.

“Para venir a lo que no sabes has de ir por donde no sabes”

[For one to arrive in the place of the unknown, one has to go through what one doesn't know ...
