Mistreated & Misremembered: A Tale Of Two Annes, Elizabeth H. Dunn Nov 2017

Mistreated & Misremembered: A Tale Of Two Annes, Elizabeth H. Dunn

Steeplechase

The two poems and historical notes that I worked on were a part of my interest in both history and poetry, especially since many historical figures remain misunderstood, ignored, or misinterpreted. Throughout my research I tried to find a personal voice for all of the subjects within the poems, Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, and Anne of Cleves. Though the poetic form gave me creative freedom, I did want to approach each name as more than just a reputation, but as a person. In my view, Henry VIII's notorious reputation and infamy still reigns today because of his many wives ...

Africana Digital Ethnography Project

According to the artist: "My style of music always depends on how I feel at the moment. I hate having to pick a genre to identify with. One thing is for sure though: I CAN RAP. When I start recording, even I don't know what's about to come out my mouth. I surprise myself. I'm Twstid."

Carpal Tunnel, Stephen Daniel Lewis Sep 2017

Carpal Tunnel, Stephen Daniel Lewis

Daniel Lewis

This collection of poems is meant to serve as an example of the temporal and cultural contexts that surround it. The sections contain a single gust of focus in order to reflect the way attention is given to a piece of art, as opposed to a wide focus spread across a book-length or career-length project. The use of "I" and "you" force engagement with the poems, as the "you" slips around in avoidance of identity. Both identity and a shortened attention span are born from the culture surrounding the poems, but voice and formal elements are meant to tie the ...

Poetry Slammin’ In The Slammer: Questioning The Limits Of Arts-In-Corrections, Rivka Rocchio Sep 2017

Poetry Slammin’ In The Slammer: Questioning The Limits Of Arts-In-Corrections, Rivka Rocchio

Pedagogy and Theatre of the Oppressed Journal

Through the process of creating—specifically of shaping new worlds of possibility through poetry and the performance of it—the arts may offer gaps in the punishment of incarceration and attempt the reclamation or claiming of individual expression. But what are the limits of artistic expression in a highly monitored and surveilled location? This reflective essay explores a performance of slam poetry by ten inmates inside Arizona's Eyman State Prison for an audience of twenty-five prisoners. Using Keoni Watson’s winning poem as a frame, Rocchio questions the reported impacts of the slam and the larger culpability of arts-in-corrections ...

Make America Wait Again, Kim Petrovic Sep 2017

Make America Wait Again, Kim Petrovic

Journal of International Women's Studies

As a means of redirecting my own personal grief that stemmed from Hillary Rodham Clinton's loss to Donald J. Trump in the most recent presidential election, I penned the following prose during the early morning hours of November 9, 2016 as Trump gave his victory speech. Like many Americans who voted in the 2016 Presidential Election, I support the right to vote for one's choice of presidential candidate; however, I am not alone in my concerns about the current presidential administration. Not only are Trump's attempts to silence the media and the right to freedom of speech ...


Muriel Rukeyser's "The Book Of The Dead": An Analytical Appreciation, Emily Cogan Sep 2017

Muriel Rukeyser's "The Book Of The Dead": An Analytical Appreciation, Emily Cogan

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Muriel Rukeyser’s poetry has always focused around a particular event be it something of global proportions such as the Spanish Civil War (Mediterranean) or the Japanese occupation of Korea (The Gates) or, as with The Book of the Dead, a specific disaster closer to her home, America. Her poetry, however, never exists purely in the realm of politics; she never aligned herself with any particular political party and consequently her poetry is never simply a call to arms or a manifesto in verse. Throughout the body of Rukeyser’s work there are echoes and allusions to poetic traditions, both ...

Negotiating A Nation: Imperialism, Multiculturism, And The Evolution Of Identity In Medieval Scottish Borderland Literature, Ruth M.E. Oldman Aug 2017

Negotiating A Nation: Imperialism, Multiculturism, And The Evolution Of Identity In Medieval Scottish Borderland Literature, Ruth M.E. Oldman

Theses and Dissertations (All)

Many medieval authors worked with the ideas of identity, at times giving way to the creation of nationalism. Depictions of national identity and nationalism varied depending upon author and time period, especially within literature from the Lowland region. This literary borderland identity was ever-evolving as the political environment over the course of the 14th and 15th centuries fluctuated and varied depending upon who was in power, the author’s political ties, and the geographic and cultural places and spaces in which authors resided. To effectively understand how and why this was the case, we must ask the following questions: how ...


Millennial Poetics: An Analysis Of Hybridity In 21st Century American Poetry, Brian Russell Lutz Aug 2017

Millennial Poetics: An Analysis Of Hybridity In 21st Century American Poetry, Brian Russell Lutz

Theses and Dissertations (All)

Numerous anthologies and critical treatises on poetry over the last two decades have weighed in on the possible dissolution of what many critics see as the two major camps of American poetry (the mainstream and the experimental), questioning the camps’ viability and porous natures. In 2009 W.W. Norton & Co. published the anthology American Hybrid edited by Cole Swensen and David St. John. It marked neither the first attempt to anthologize a murky blending of mainstream and experimental poetry, nor a crystallized vision of what a hybrid poetics might look like. However, it did spur a great deal of criticism ranging from concerns about its depth, breadth and inclusivity to the validity of its claims about generic categories (the avant-garde, the traditional), to its definition of a hybrid poetics, to its reliance on established poets already well entrenched in particular camps. For all that, however, the claims it makes require some investigation. After all, no movement in poetry is apolitical. These debates are not simply about naming rights for a new movement; rather, it is a question of how best to unpack critical concerns about the role of language and poetry in resisting the status quo. It is a question about a population’s belief in the ability of particular poetics to enact change. Hybrid poetics asks what happens to the content of ...

This Way Girl Comes Bearing Gifts, Alexandra Webster Aug 2017

This Way Girl Comes Bearing Gifts, Alexandra Webster

MSU Graduate Theses

The following collection deals with autobiographical work. My purpose for this thesis was to present poems in which spoke to a girlish attitude under various circumstances such as age, location, and expectation. While this thread of girlhood lends itself as a conceptual framework, the poems themselves vary in style. They move between elements of imagism, narrative, lyricism, meditation, and some code-switching. I found that by letting the poems happen upon recognition and shape themselves out of memorable content rather than by trying to adhere to a strict concentration on one particular style or form allowed me ample materials for building ...
