La Guerre Sauvage: The Seven Years' War On The Virginia And Pennsylvania Frontier, Matthew Charles Ward Jan 1992

La Guerre Sauvage: The Seven Years' War On The Virginia And Pennsylvania Frontier, Matthew Charles Ward

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

The Seven Years' War on the Virginia and Pennsylvania frontier was a devastating struggle. About two thousand colonists died, almost as many were captured, and tens of thousands fled for safety in the east. The British and their colonists proved unable to mount an effective military defence: colonial forces proved unfit for warfare in the frontier environment and military efforts resulted only in intense discord between civil and military authorities. as a result of the destruction of the raids both Virginia and Pennsylvania were unable to contribute to the war effort in the northern theater, on the St. Lawrence, Lake ...

Ten Types Of Ambiguity In Nahuatl Poetry, Or William Empson Among The Aztecs, Willard Gingerich Jan 1992

Ten Types Of Ambiguity In Nahuatl Poetry, Or William Empson Among The Aztecs, Willard Gingerich

Department of English Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

Though the oldest poetry of the Americas may have been composed before Caedmon's "Hymn" (ca. 680), the earliest known English poem, the languages and literatures of Native American peoples have only recently begun to receive the critical attention they demand.

Reviewing early translations, the contributors discuss the difficulties in working with oral literature and a vast diversity of languages ...
