The End Of Her, Kerry Alexander Apr 2012

The End Of Her, Kerry Alexander

English Honors Projects

The End of Her is a collection of poetry that centers on ideas of celebrity, nostalgia, pain and healing, and collective memory. The poems depict the lives and times of tragic women: from Eve to Amy Winehouse. The project touches on both the real and the imagined in examining what it means to be famously tragic, as well as what it means to be a spectator of demise. Interwoven autobiographical pieces reveal the relationship between individual memory and shared history, as the collection positions personal accounts of love and loss in conversation with some of the world’s best-known stories.

Even Santa Has Bad Days: The Rainy Day Christmas Card, Charles "Chip" Kaufmann Jan 2007

Even Santa Has Bad Days: The Rainy Day Christmas Card, Charles "Chip" Kaufmann

Maine History

The Rainy Day Christmas Card, donated to the Maine Historical Society Library by Earl Shettleworth, was designed by Rafael Tuck & Sons in London and printed in the 1880s or 1890s at the First Fine Arts Works Studios, Saxony. Other Victorian Christmas cards produced by Tuck (1821-1900) contain similarly un-Christmas-like images: a bouquet of damask roses; wild flowers; apple blossoms; green Scottish heathland; idyllic fishing nets in a rural village; a country churchyard with newly-green birch trees beyond a waterfall. Clearly, behind the clouds of an English Christmas, somewhere, the sun must be shining.
