Letting Poetry Inside, To Stay, Erin Siegferth Jan 2019

Letting Poetry Inside, To Stay, Erin Siegferth

Honors Research Projects

As a child, writing poetry came naturally, like learning to speak. Over time and throughout school, rigid styles of academic interpretation and an air of demographic exclusivity corrupted the genre. I came to associate poetry with historical, formal poets of history. It wasn't until my undergraduate studies introduced me to contemporary poetry that I realized poems were still being created and consumed today, by a diverse and thriving community. This realization renewed my perception of poetry and gave me permission to write in a way that felt authentic, despite the conventions and rules I had learned. In this introduction ...

Finding And Making Home: Poems And Reflections Of Undergraduate Children Of Immigrants, Gladys Perez

Master's Theses

The number of children of immigrants within the United States has grown over the past few decades and more so we are seeing a greater number of these children pursuing a higher education.

Five Poems From Miss Suki, Or America Is Not Far By Utz Rachowski, Louise Stoehr Dec 2018

Five Poems From Miss Suki, Or America Is Not Far By Utz Rachowski, Louise Stoehr

Transference

The five short poems selected from Utz Rachowski’s (1954- ) 2013 volume Miss Suki oder Amerika ist nicht weit! mark a shift in his poetic work. His poetry and prose focus almost exclusively on life in the former German Democratic Republic. During the time the GDR existed, his critical poems were cause for his arrest and imprisonment and eventual exile to West Germany. Rachowski has continued to examine his experiences of life under state oppression, including the ramifications after unification. With the 2013 publication of Miss Suki, Rachowski added a new tone of lightness to his writing, which nevertheless remains ...

Claiming Your Life And Education, Kelly E. Corkery Dec 2018

Claiming Your Life And Education, Kelly E. Corkery

Line by Line: A Journal of Beginning Student Writing

My essay is a rhetorical analysis of Adrienne Rich’s speech, “Claiming an Education." I chose Rich’s speech because a friend of mine told me that her introduction to college seminar at Penn State discussed the speech, and I found the speech to be very interesting. After choosing the speech, I completed two drafts, which were both edited in both a peer review and by my instructor, Professor Strain. After my first draft, I also had a writing conference with Professor Strain to refine my work more. After my second draft, I met with Professor Strain again to discuss ...

Dreamland, Corey Hashimoto Dec 2018

Dreamland, Corey Hashimoto

Corey Hashimoto

Set eight years after three United States Marines return home from Iraq,
Dreamland explores the effect their experience has on their relationships with
their loved ones and each other. The novel focuses on the reverberating effects a
single event during the second assault on Fallujah has on three remaining
members of a doomed assignment—a drug addict, a depressed artist, and an
anxiety-stricken father —each dealing with their trauma differently. Though all
three are on a path of self-destruction, Dreamland examines the toxic power of
isolation and the redemptive quality of shared purpose.
