The Second Pen, Nicholas D. Brennan 2017 CUNY Hunter College

The Second Pen, Nicholas D. Brennan

School of Arts & Sciences Theses

"The Second Pen" evaluates the historical relevancy of prevalent monikers for William Shakespeare-- namely, "The Bard," "Swan of Avon," and "Upstart Crow." While Brennan finds the general concept of the moniker to encapsulate Shakespeare's current historical legacy, he equally finds the aforementioned monikers to misrepresent this. Brennan offers "The Second Pen" as a moniker for Shakespeare that redresses the distortions of the others. He concentrates his defense of its relevancy around a defense of William Shakespeare as the "second pen" which Ben Jonson's 1605 Sejanus quarto names as a collaborator in the writing of a preceding stage version ...


The Short Story And The Photographic: Twentieth-Century Imagetexts In And Of The Americas, Lucienne Muller 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Short Story And The Photographic: Twentieth-Century Imagetexts In And Of The Americas, Lucienne Muller

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation examines the visuality of the short story from an intermedial point of view, that is, with a focus on the relationship between the short story and the photographic visual. This analysis draws from photographic theory and from the writings of photographer and writer Julio Cortazar whose philosophy puts forward the idea of a reader who becomes the inventive co-creator of the fictional work.


Different Equals, Ellery Trantham 2017 Collin College

Different Equals, Ellery Trantham

Quest

The following paper represents work produced by a student in a World Literature I course at Collin College.

Students study works of prose, poetry, drama, and fiction in relation to their historical and cultural contexts.

In what follows, students have written essays that require them to research a work of literature and enter into a written conversation with the academic articles that they find. Kenneth Burke calls this process an “unending conversation” and describes it ...


On The World's Stage, James Popiolek 2017 Collin College

On The World's Stage, James Popiolek

Quest

The following papers represent research work begun by students in English 1301, the first course in the two-semester composition sequence at Collin College.

In what follows, students have written creative research-based essays called Multiple Genre Arguments. When we experience controversial issues in our everyday lives, no one hands us a ten-page research paper that outlines the issues and tells us what to do. Instead, we have to wade through the ...


Dangerous Fictions In Shakespeare's Richard Ii, Terence D. Wride 2017 Brigham Young University

Dangerous Fictions In Shakespeare's Richard Ii, Terence D. Wride

All Student Publications

In Shakespeare's Richard II, Shakespeare deposes monarchy by exposing the dangerous fictions of The King’s Two Bodies, Carl Schmitt's definition of sovereignty as expounded in Political Theology, and the English tradition of the divine right of kings and royal prerogative. By examining Ernst Kantorowicz's explication of the king's body politic and body natural as found his book The King's Two Bodies, I argue that Shakespeare critiques the popular political theology of his time by exposing the negative political repercussions of an ill-defined body politic. What past scholars have overlooked and failed to do is ...


Evidence Of Hindu Religion On The Theory Of Chomsky's Transformational Grammar, Koot van Wyk 2017 Avondale College of Higher Education

Evidence Of Hindu Religion On The Theory Of Chomsky's Transformational Grammar, Koot Van Wyk

Koot Van Wyk

The purpose of this paper is to broaden the links to Noam Chomsky, the American linguist in order to show that he is not only a product of his own professors or immediate surroundings, nor from links he willingly made to the 17th-19th century scientists and philosophers but also further back to the Hindu mathematician linguist Panini. Individual studies were made in the past to each of these aspects separately but this paper brings concepts together to form a network of similarity of ideas that stands ultimately in contrast to another reality of understanding, that is, two sets of networks ...


A Conversational And Compositional Grid For Freshman University Students, Koot van Wyk 2017 Avondale College of Higher Education

A Conversational And Compositional Grid For Freshman University Students, Koot Van Wyk

Koot Van Wyk

The purpose of this paper is to put together a tool for Freshman University Students with an ESL level, which will assist them to avoid errors in syntax precision and sentence generation. Both these aspects are problematic for students with a SOV language as mother-tongue who then have to produce with a SVO challenge. When their own language is a post-positional language as opposed to English as a prepositional language, that situation may complicate matters for these students even more. The grid is designed in such a way to allow the student to start from the left and work his ...


A Conversational And Compositional Grid For Freshman University Students Ii: Application And Analysis, Andy H. T. Chung, Koot van Wyk 2017 Kyungpook National University

A Conversational And Compositional Grid For Freshman University Students Ii: Application And Analysis, Andy H. T. Chung, Koot Van Wyk

Koot Van Wyk

Previously a tool was designed for the purpose of improving the standard of the sentence production of Freshman University Students with an ESL low level, which assisted them to avoid errors in syntax precision and sentence generation. The lamenting aspect of the previous article is that the tool was not tested for effectiveness. In this article, the results are presented of applying the tool in a class situation. The focus was on problems that beginners experience in a ESL situation regarding syntax in grammar and whether this tool could help them. A project was designed for the students to watch ...
