Hell And High Water: Prophecy, Anna Denisch May 2018

Hell And High Water: Prophecy, Anna Denisch

Master of Fine Arts in Professional Writing Theses

Following the story lines of three, interconnecting characters, this novel aims to challenge the notion that only those with wisdom and power can influence the world and the events that take place in it. Meant to be an anti-prophecy novel, Hell and High Water: Prophecy will strive to prove that the “chosen one” is not the only character in a book that can save the world.

However, these tales, as well as their adaptations, are anything but frivolous and trivial. Fairy tales have the unique power to reflect or change the cultural values of a people and era through their morals and lessons. With this project, I will examine this genre of creative writing and rework classic stories from a feminist perspective to reflect the issues and values of the 21st ...
