Hawthorne's 1850'S Romances: Political And Personal Apologia And Accommodation, Vicki Carbone Dec 2008

Hawthorne's 1850'S Romances: Political And Personal Apologia And Accommodation, Vicki Carbone

English Master’s Theses

Nathaniel Hawthorne was one in a long line of American scholars, politicians, statesmen, and writers who created a national mythos. By creating, or recreating, a national past wherein every American would share, at least in myth, a common New England beginning, it was hoped that Americans would share a common view of America as the city set on a hill which the Puritans believed they had established. This was to accomplish many objectives: glorify America's Puritan beginnings, make heroic the Puritan forefathers, and remind every American of the brotherhood of all Americans. In addition to this, Hawthorne undertook to ...

International Terrorism:Role ,Responsibility And Operation Of Media Channles, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr Nov 2008

International Terrorism:Role ,Responsibility And Operation Of Media Channles, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr

Ratnesh Dwivedi

"Terrorism" is a term that cannot be given a stable defintion. Or rather, it can, but to do so forstalls any attempt to examine the major feature of its relation to television in the contemporary world. As the central public arena for organising ways of picturing and talking about social and political life, TV plays a pivotal role in the contest between competing defintions, accounts and explanations of terrorism. Which term is used in any particular context is inextricably tied to judgemements about the legitimacy of the action in question and of the political system against which it is directed ...


Walt Whitman's "Higher Progress" And Shorter Work Hours, Benjamin Kline Hunnicutt Oct 2008

Walt Whitman's "Higher Progress" And Shorter Work Hours, Benjamin Kline Hunnicutt

Walt Whitman Quarterly Review

Analyzes Democratic Vistas and other writings to demonstrate that part of Whitman’s conception of “higher progress” involved the attainment of freedom beyond basic necessities in order to gain “liberty’s ultimate challenge”—for “citizens to fill the purest of freedoms with activities that were complete in themselves”; goes on to track Whitman’s involvement in the movement to reduce working hours, increase leisure, and develop “labor-saving machines,” all of which formed “the obvious practical link between increasing material wealth and ‘higher progress’”; concludes by considering the influence of Whitman’s “higher progress” on John Maynard Keynes and on economists ...

"Average-Representing Grant": Whitman's General, Martin T. Buinicki Oct 2008

"Average-Representing Grant": Whitman's General, Martin T. Buinicki

Walt Whitman Quarterly Review

Examines Whitman’s changing attitudes toward Ulysses S. Grant from the Civil War through the poet’s late conversations with Horace Traubel, analyzes Whitman’s poetry and prose about Grant, and shows how Whitman eventually “saw in the general and his critics a symbol of his own poetic battles against the canons of tradition.”

A Western Man Of Color: Richard Wright And The World, Guy J. Reynolds Sep 2008

A Western Man Of Color: Richard Wright And The World, Guy J. Reynolds

Presentations, Talks, and Seminar Papers -- Department of English

Richard Wright had become by the mid 50s an analyst of what it means to be ‘of’ the West. He was by now a firmly-established émigré, and had become a French citizen in 1947. His journeys, in a way, had only just become: Europe was a stage or an inauguration into further mappings of the self and society. Those mappings took the extraordinary geo-political shifts of the mid-century as their subject. In the wake of the Second World War, severely damaged economically and in terms of sheer power, European nations were finally forced to give ground to the nationalist movements ...


Setting The Record Straight: Anne W. Armstrong, Regionalism, And The Social Efficacy Of Fiction, Katherine Hoffman Doman Aug 2008

Setting The Record Straight: Anne W. Armstrong, Regionalism, And The Social Efficacy Of Fiction, Katherine Hoffman Doman

Doctoral Dissertations

Categorized by the few critics who know her work as a "minor" Appalachian writer, Anne Wetzell Armstrong has never enjoyed the recognition she deserves. But she produced an important body of work, including fiction, non-fiction and drama. In the 1970‘s, critic Elaine Showalter led the gynocritical effort to recover women writers and inspired the reintroduction of a number of overlooked authors. This national impulse and the positive reception of its results has driven, in turn, an interest in similar regional efforts—hence my own interest in recovering the work of Armstrong, whose work has value in both national and ...

The Poet Of The Great Reality: Czesław Miłosz's Readings Of Walt Whitman, Marta Skwara Jul 2008

The Poet Of The Great Reality: Czesław Miłosz's Readings Of Walt Whitman, Marta Skwara

Walt Whitman Quarterly Review

Traces the “three main phases of Milosz’s acquaintance with Whitman,” from Milosz’s initial reading of Whitman in Polish translations and “his recognition of the Polish fascination with Whitman,” through his reading of Whitman in the original English while in Berkeley in the 1960s and his translations of Whitman into Polish, through a final phase “pregnant with commentaries formulated in different essays,” culminating in his “final view of Whitman” as “the poet of the great reality.”

Purloined Voices: Edgar Allan Poe Reading Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Alexander M. Schlutz Jul 2008

Purloined Voices: Edgar Allan Poe Reading Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Alexander M. Schlutz

Publications and Research

This essay unfolds the complex intertextual relationship between the work of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and that of Edgar Allan Poe. References to and extended borrowings from Coleridge’s poetry and philosophical texts mark Poe’s œuvre throughout, but – as is only fitting for borrowings from the great borrower Coleridge – they are never anything as simple as plagiarisms or acts of intellectual theft. As this piece demonstrates through readings of Poe’s early poetological text “Letter to B–,” the Dupin story “The Purloined Letter,” and the late tour-de-force prose-poem Eureka, tracing the recurrence of Coleridgean poetry and prose in the work ...

“Much Madness Is Divinest Sense”: A Sociological Theory Of Insanity Applied To The Yellow Wall-Paper And Her Story, Spring Westover Apr 2008

“Much Madness Is Divinest Sense”: A Sociological Theory Of Insanity Applied To The Yellow Wall-Paper And Her Story, Spring Westover

Languages and Literature Undergraduate Theses

In this thesis, I applied a sociological theory of insanity to two short stories written by female authors in 19th century American literature. According to social scientists such as Thomas Szasz, insanity is a form of social deviancy from accepted behavioral norms of society. Like other social non-conformists, such as homeless persons or persons accused or convicted of crimes, people labeled “insane” are discriminated against and oppressed because of their perceived differences. According to this model, insanity is a social situation that can only be solved through close scrutiny and institution revision, not a physical ailment that can be “cured ...
