The Southern Misfit And The Dream Of Escape In The Fiction Of Carson Mccullers And Flannery O’Connor, Tammy Oberhausen Dec 1990

The Southern Misfit And The Dream Of Escape In The Fiction Of Carson Mccullers And Flannery O’Connor, Tammy Oberhausen

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

The misfit and the dream of escape are popular motifs in American literature, particularly in the literature of the South. Critical studies of works employing these themes have largely ignored the connection between the two. The Southern misfit – the Southerner who fails to or refuses to conform to his society’s strict standards – often dreams of escaping the restrictions of the South for some Northern “promised land.” In the works of two Georgia writers, Carson McCullers and Flannery O’Connor, the related themes receive different treatments. Carson McCullers’s misfits in the novels The Heart is a Lonely Hunter and ...

Wendell Berry’S Cyclic Vision: Traditional Farming As Metaphor, Morris Allen Grubbs Jul 1990

Wendell Berry’S Cyclic Vision: Traditional Farming As Metaphor, Morris Allen Grubbs

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

Although Wendell Berry’s first book, a novel, appeared in 1960, he did not gain significant national attention until the publication of his nonfiction manifesto, The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture, in 1977. Since its publication, Berry has moved increasingly toward the prose of persuasion as he continues to sharpen his argument in support of a practical, continuous harmony between the human economy and Nature. His canon as a whole – the poems, essays, and novels – is an ongoing and thorough exploration of man’s use of and relationship to the land.

Arguing that the health of a culture is ...

More Light On The Earliest French Review Of Whitman, Ezra Greenspan

Walt Whitman Quarterly Review

Clears up a confusion regarding the author's article, "The Earliest French Review of Walt Whitman" in WWQR (6/3) by establishing that "the French translation of Leaves of Grass announced by the New York Saturday Press in 1860 was a literary hoax" and proposes that Henry Clapp may have been the hoax's perpetrator; see also Roger Asselineau's note in the same issue of WWQR.

Passage To More Than Imagism: Whitman's Imagistic Poems, John E. Schwiebert Jul 1990

Passage To More Than Imagism: Whitman's Imagistic Poems, John E. Schwiebert

Walt Whitman Quarterly Review

Identifies Whitman's "imagistic poems" not as "an exculsive and distinctive subset of Leaves" but as "whole poems in which the discursive and didactic elements . . . are suppressed, and the visual element predominates"; reads these poems as important elements in his oeuvre that "invite us to limn significances (as poets do) behind even the most overtly 'simple' and 'objective' facts."

The Short Fiction Of Bobbie Ann Mason: Exposing The Problems In American Society & Searching For Some Solutions, Melanie Allen May 1990

The Short Fiction Of Bobbie Ann Mason: Exposing The Problems In American Society & Searching For Some Solutions, Melanie Allen

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

Bobbie Ann Mason uses her fiction to portray the problems in American society. She devotes most of her time to average persons who are suffering from the rapid changes that society is going through. These characters at times seem lost and helpless, but ultimately they do not give up hope for a brighter future. Through social problems such as divorce, lack of communication, loss of identity and place, obsession with the past, submersion in rock music and TV, loss of ritual, proliferation of objects, lack of education, and the need to face mortality, these characters still seem to have hope ...
