A Terrible Beauty Is Born! Cultivating Critical Consciousness Using Trauma As Visual Metadata In Yeats’S Poetry Of Resistance, “Easter, 1916”, Anita August 2018 Sacred Heart University

A Terrible Beauty Is Born! Cultivating Critical Consciousness Using Trauma As Visual Metadata In Yeats’S Poetry Of Resistance, “Easter, 1916”, Anita August

English Faculty Publications

The aim of this chapter is to examine William Butler Yeats’s use of trauma as visual metadata during the Easter Rebellion in 1916 to raise critical consciousness for future rebellions in Ireland. Previous examinations of Yeats’s “Easter, 1916” focus almost exclusively on the call for rebellion. This appeal however overlooks Yeats’s challenge to preserve the spirit of resistance by focalizing on the unseen liberation within him and Ireland that remained despite the failed rebellion. With 2016 marking 100 years of “Easter, 1916,” as the most popular of Yeats’s political poems, the rhetorical appeal in this chapter ...


Nelson Small Legs Junior And Going Back Woman: Indigenous Grassroots Activism In Western Canada 1972-1976, Elizabeth Best 2018 Wilfrid Laurier University

Nelson Small Legs Junior And Going Back Woman: Indigenous Grassroots Activism In Western Canada 1972-1976, Elizabeth Best

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

Nelson Small Legs Junior aimed a shotgun at his heart and pulled the trigger in the late afternoon on 16 May 1976. Nelson killed himself in protest of the mishandling of Indigenous affairs by the Canadian federal government. Did this individual protest impact policy change? Did Nelson die in vain? Did Nelson’s commitment create renewed activism in the Indigenous community in Canada? We may never know the answers to these questions. However, Nelson’s suicide brings many questions to light. What were the living conditions of Indigenous people during the 1970s? What was the state of western First Nations ...


The Rangeley Spinner: An American Fishing Favorite, William B. Krohn 2017 University of Maine

The Rangeley Spinner: An American Fishing Favorite, William B. Krohn

William B. Krohn

The Rangeley Spinner was invented in western Maine almost 140 years ago. The spinner's inventor, and first manufacturer, was long-time Maine Fisheries Commissioner, Henry O. Stanley of Dixfield. This exceptionally popular fishing spinner has stood the test of time by being made and sold continuously by many makers in many places, but mostly in Maine, for more than a century. This book will document this fishing lure's history, the many varieties made, and the spinner's numerous makers.

The book's working outline is as follows: Preface, Introduction, Anatomy of a Rangeley Spinner, Henry O. Stanley - The Originator ...


The Anglo-Kuki War 1917-1919: A Frontier Uprising Against Imperialism During World War I, Thongkholal Haokip 2017 Jawaharlal Nehru University

The Anglo-Kuki War 1917-1919: A Frontier Uprising Against Imperialism During World War I, Thongkholal Haokip

Thongkholal Haokip

One hundred years ago, when other parts of India was busy collecting combatants, non-combatants, labourers, funds and materials for the Great War, the Kukis of the Northeastern frontier of India declared ‘war against the King-Emperor’. Initially provoked by the ‘forcible’ recruitment of labour corps for France, the opposition turned into an armed resistance, partly because the ‘intemperate’ local officers were incompetent to handle the situation, and partly because the Kukis were overawed by the revolutionary ideas from the valley of Manipur, from Bengal in the west, and from the Germans from the east. Though such influence cannot be overstated, the ...

The Illusion Of Parity: Determining Us Policy In The Post-Post Soviet Period, Kyle Sallee 2017 Portland State University

The Illusion Of Parity: Determining Us Policy In The Post-Post Soviet Period, Kyle Sallee

Kyle Sallee

For 70 years, Soviet schoolchildren were taught “Moya rodina — Sovetskiy Soyuz (TheSoviet Union is my motherland),” but the motherland would be brought to her knees in 1991 as the trans-national Soviet identity disappeared with the collapse of the Soviet Empire, taking with it the ruins of the ideological, social, and political institutions that had supported civilization in the USSR and the Eastern Bloc for generations. What remained in the wake, a nuclear apparatus which was second only to that of the United States, would be the cause of an ongoing discourse between the Russian Federation and the United States. This ...

Gown Before Crown: Scholarly Abjection And Academic Entertainment Under Queen Elizabeth I, Linda Shenk

Linda Shenk

In 1592, Queen Elizabeth I and the Privy Council made a rather audacious request of their intellectuals at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. The Christmas season was fast approaching, and a recent outbreak of the plague prohibited the queen's professional acting company from performing the season's customary entertainment. To avoid having a Christmas without revels, the crown sent messengers to both institutions, asking for university men to come to court and perform a comedy in English. Cambridge's Vice Chancellor, John Still, wished to decline this royal invitation, and for advice on how to do so he ...
