Divergent Worldviews In Ron Rash's "Serena", Brenda Dye Stephens 2010 Gardner-Webb University

Divergent Worldviews In Ron Rash's "Serena", Brenda Dye Stephens

MA in English Theses

Ron Rash, through Serena, captures the often misunderstood complex nature of the Appalachian people in the early twentieth century and the effects of human centered environmental changes on this culture and natural landscape. The focus of this analysis involves viewing Serena through the lens of ecofeminism and introducing Rash's vision of the important interrelationship between landscape and culture, particularly in light of the historical outsider vision and its impact upon the people of Appalachia.

The culture and natural environment of the Appalachian people are revealed through the gazes of the characters. Through the fictional viewpoints in Serena,Rash creates ...

The Mother Tongues Of Modernity: Modernism, Transnationalism, Translation, Roland K. Végső 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

The Mother Tongues Of Modernity: Modernism, Transnationalism, Translation, Roland K. Végső

Faculty Publications -- Department of English

The relation of modernism to immigrant literatures should not be conceived in terms of an opposition between universalistic and particularistic discourses. Rather, we should explore what can be called a modernist transnationalism based on a general universalist argument. Two examples of this transnationalism are explored side by side: Ezra Pound’s and Anzia Yezierska’s definitions of the aesthetic act in terms of translation. The readings show that the critical discourses of these two authors are structured by a belief in universalism while showing opposite possibilities, both generated by modernist transnationalism. The essay concludes that we now need to interpret ...


"Just A Girl": The Community-Centered Cult Television Heroine, 1995-2007, Tamy Burnett 2010 University of Nebraska at Lincoln

"Just A Girl": The Community-Centered Cult Television Heroine, 1995-2007, Tamy Burnett

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research: Department of English

Found in the most recent group of cult heroines on television, community-centered cult heroines share two key characteristics. The first is their youth and the related coming-of-age narratives that result. The second is their emphasis on communal heroic action that challenges traditional understandings of the hero and previous constructions of the cult heroine on television. Through close readings of Xena: Warrior Princess, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Dark Angel, and Veronica Mars, this project engages feminist theories of community and heroism alongside critical approaches to genre and narrative technique, identity performance theory, and visual media critique to explore the community-centered ...

William Plomer, Transnational Modernism And The Hogarth Press, John K. Young 2010 Marshall University

William Plomer, Transnational Modernism And The Hogarth Press, John K. Young

English Faculty Research

William Plomer (1903–73), a self-described Anglo-Afro-Asian novelist, poet, editor and librettist, spent only the early years of his lengthy career as a Hogarth Press author but still ranks as one of the Woolfs’ most prolific writers, with a total of nine titles issued during his seven years with the Press. Like Katherine Mansfield, Plomer made his mark with Hogarth before signing with a more established firm, but the depth and breadth of Plomer’s career with the Woolfs is significantly greater: his five volumes of fiction presented Hogarth’s readers with groundbreaking portraits of South African, Japanese and (British ...

“Murdering An Aunt Or Two”: Textual Practice And Narrative Form In Virginia Woolf’S Metropolitan Market, John K. Young

English Faculty Research

As evidence for the multiple connections between the commercial and intellectual freedoms provided by the Hogarth Press for its co-owner and leading author, consider a diary entry from September 1925:

How my hand writing goes down hill! Another sacrifice to the Hogarth Press. Yet what I owe the Hogarth Press is barely paid by the whole of my handwriting…I’m the only woman in England free to write what I like. The others must be thinking of series’ & editors. Yesterday I heard from Harcourt Brace that Mrs. D & C.R. are selling 148 & 73 weekly--Isn’t that a surprising ...

Radical Representations, Eruptive Moments: The Documentary Aesthetic In American Literature, 1890-Present, Jennifer Nicole Armstrong 2010 University of Colorado, Boulder

Radical Representations, Eruptive Moments: The Documentary Aesthetic In American Literature, 1890-Present, Jennifer Nicole Armstrong

English Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Scholars have situated the emergence of a literary documentary aesthetic in the politically radical 1930s. My dissertation, "Radical Representations, Eruptive Moments: The Documentary Aesthetic in American Literature, 1890-Present," revises this genealogy and traces the aesthetic to an earlier time, the 1890s. This aesthetic emerges alongside the development of visual technologies such as flash photography and the cinematograph, technologies that altered reading practices and expectations. Though no concentrated documentary movement exists at the turn of the twentieth century, documentary techniques inform literary production. Specifically, these techniques result in hybrid narratives. Moreover, this documentary turn responds to eruptive moments--cultural, political, technological, and ...
