Writing In Light: Giving Silences Their Say In Janette Turner Hospital's "The Last Magician", Niva Kaspi 2010 Edith Cowan University

Writing In Light: Giving Silences Their Say In Janette Turner Hospital's "The Last Magician", Niva Kaspi

Theses : Honours

The last magician (1992) by Janette Turner Hospital tells the story of Lucy, the novel's narrator, who is trying to piece together the mystery disappearance and possible murder of three people. Gabriel, Lucy's boyfriend, and Charlie Chang, a photographer, have gone missing while searching for Cat, Charlie's childhood friend. The story shifts between present time Sydney and a tragedy that took place a generation earlier in rural Queensland, involving the death of Cat's younger brother, Willy. The novel draws on conventions of the mystery genre, so that readers desire to know what has happened to several ...


“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 ...


The Identity Challenge In Toni Morrison's "Paradise", Vida De Voss 2010 Iowa State University

The Identity Challenge In Toni Morrison's "Paradise", Vida De Voss

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

This thesis analyzes identity in Toni Morrison's "Paradise." I argue that identity is portrayed as informed by relationships of the self and the other. Relying on Lacan's notion of the mirror phase I point out that the other is depicted as mirrored in the self. Employing Levinas's notions of totality and infinity I highlight portrayals of the self mirrored in the other - as when the self views the other through the self's self-conception or worldview. I conclude that "Paradise" challenges the universal individual to consider and respond to his or her co-constructed identity with the other ...

Moundsville Penitentiary Reconsidered: Second Thoughts On A Small Town Prison Tour, Allen Mendenhall 2009 Temple University

Moundsville Penitentiary Reconsidered: Second Thoughts On A Small Town Prison Tour, Allen Mendenhall

Allen Mendenhall

In 2007, I toured Moundsville Penitentiary, a tourist spectacle that was once - and fairly recently - a working prison. I wrote about the experience as would a journalist, except that my working paradigm was the postmodern theory of hyperreality, which Jean Baudrillard used to describe the complex tensions between reality and illusion. A term of semiotics, hyperreality refers to the disappearance of the referent and its subsequent, oft-replicated simulation. It almost always involves strategically controlled images that distort and conceal true meaning. The International Journal of Baudrillard Studies published my essay in January 2009. Shortly thereafter, many of my libertarian friends ...

Testimony, Jonna C. Mackin 2009 Dartmouth College

Testimony, Jonna C. Mackin

Dr. Jonna C Mackin

This introduction to my book about comedy seeks to establish who I am as a writer of a book about comedy and about ethnicity. It then goes on to explain why comedy, identity and desire so often are linked by referencing theories of Diana Fuss and Homi Bhabha as well as Sigmund Freud on comedy.
