Tell Me What You Really Think (A Novel), Marriya Schwarz 2020 William & Mary

Tell Me What You Really Think (A Novel), Marriya Schwarz

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This is a comedic novel, titled Tell Me What You Really Think. It centers around Brooke Anne Dixon, a character with a strong hatred of her name, since her initials spell out “BAD.” Because of this, she assumes that she was doomed for failure at birth. In this way, she sees herself a bit like a Sleeping Beauty character (less beauty, more sleep). She is a writer, who recently achieved success through a short story, titled “Wasted” that was published through The New Yorker. It was a story where she wrote about her true personal life through the guise of ...


When Valerie Solanas Shot Andy Warhol: A Feminist Tale Of Madness And Revolution, Phyllis Chesler 2020 Phyllis Chesler Organization

When Valerie Solanas Shot Andy Warhol: A Feminist Tale Of Madness And Revolution, Phyllis Chesler

Dignity: A Journal on Sexual Exploitation and Violence

In 1967 Valerie Solanas published the Society for Cutting Up Men (the SCUM) Manifesto. She shot artist Andy Warhol in 1968. Her Manifesto raises issues about whether a revolution can be fought or won without using violence. “Nice” girls were of no use to her Radical feminists, especially Ti-Grace Atkinson and Flo Kennedy, saw Solanas as a symbol of a feminist fighting back and rushed to her side. They found a smart, very paranoid woman who was a decided loner. Ultimately, Solanas would not work with Atkinson and Kennedy; she refused to allow them to help her or explain her ...

Blend It Like Beckett: Samuel Beckett And Experimental Contemporary Creative Writing, Sam Nicole Campbell 2020 East Tennessee State University

Blend It Like Beckett: Samuel Beckett And Experimental Contemporary Creative Writing, Sam Nicole Campbell

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Samuel Beckett penned novels, short stories, poetry, stage plays, radio plays, and scripts—and he did each in a way that blended genre, challenged the norms of creative writing, and surprised audiences around the globe. His experimental approach to creative writing included the use of absurdism, genre-hybridization, and ergodicism, which led to Beckett fundamentally changing the approach to creative writing. His aesthetics have trickled down through the years and can be seen in contemporary works, including Aimee Bender’s short story collection The Girl in the Flammable Skirt and Mark Z. Danielewski’s novel House of Leaves[1]. By examining ...


The Prodigy Of Existence: An Essay On Identity And Its Constraints With Original Poems, Azariah Butler Ruthford 2020 California State University, Monterey Bay

The Prodigy Of Existence: An Essay On Identity And Its Constraints With Original Poems, Azariah Butler Ruthford

Capstone Projects and Master's Theses

This research essay and collection of poems will highlight key moments in coming to terms with identity. For myself, these identities include race, sexuality, and gender. I have found an expressive outlet through poetry in which I can deduce experiences and make them more approachable for the audience from the perspective of a black, homosexual man. Similarly, Toni Morrison tasks the readers to understand the ways in which identities propose limitations on individuals in her novel, Beloved .The pieces included in this selection will illustrate how life experiences often dictate ones’ identity, and how exploring these differences can inspire both ...


"Shade Of The Earth", Joseph Patrick Self 2020 Eastern Washington University

"Shade Of The Earth", Joseph Patrick Self

2020 Symposium Creative Works

“Shade of the Earth” is a collection of 5 narrative poems: “On The Mountaintop”, “The Burning Boy”, “May Live or Die”, “Must Burn to Feel”, and “Shade of the Earth." The story runs together as one narrative with each poem linking into the next, split up into parts, not to divide but to bring them together. Perhaps in the hope of showing that life is separated yet whole.

This series portrays the state of mind of someone (possibly) self-entitled, the Burning Boy, as they battle against the entity of Night who exists as the complexities of pain and sadness and ...


Our Stories, Paige Wright 2020 Ouachita Baptist University

Our Stories, Paige Wright

Scholars Day Conference

After exploring my history with horror and how the genre developed over time, I share some short horror stories I've written and why I find the horror genre important as a Christian.


Editing The Editor, Adeline Goodman 2020 Ouachita Baptist University

Editing The Editor, Adeline Goodman

Scholars Day Conference

Through six months of rethinking and re-conceiving a manuscript I wrote in middle school, I have transformed my process as author and editor. Reflecting on my experience as journalist, senior editor, researcher, and writer in college, I addressed challenges such as self-criticism, peer-review, historical accuracy, and emotional storytelling as I rewrote the young novel. "Editing the Editor" demonstrates the nitty-gritty of what it means to resiliently polish prose and what that looks like in print.

Eclipsed By Culture, Andrea Diamond 2020 Utah State University

Eclipsed By Culture, Andrea Diamond

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

The purpose of this thesis is to explore through poetry my conflicted relationship with an abusive, narcissistic father, a father who passed down to me the after-effects of generations of inherited trauma and traditions of patriarchy. In a narrative arc unfolding through domestic scenes and deepened with metaphor, I offer readers the story of my struggle to accept the personal and psychological damage I experienced as a child, to forgive, and to achieve a measure of healing so that my experience might benefit others. Using poetry enabled me to distill elements of my circumstances that, in my lived experience, were ...


Skin: Stories, Poems, And Essays, Amanda G. Hadlock 2020 Missouri State University

Skin: Stories, Poems, And Essays, Amanda G. Hadlock

MSU Graduate Theses

This thesis begins with a critical introduction which analyzes the use of objective correlative and varying points of view in creative writing in order to generate dialogue on cultural issues. I relate theories from Edward T. Hall, T.S. Eliot, Mikhail Bakhtin, and Lubomír Doležel to my own writing. Additionally, I situate my own multi-genre writing with work of contemporaries such as Maggie Nelson and Claudia Rankine. My hypothesis is that writers can use an objective correlative (Eliot) from the top of the cultural iceberg (Hall) as an entry point to representing deeper, more fraught cultural issues. Additionally ...


Strange Frequencies: Development Of A Post-Human Sequential Narrative, Jessica Young 2020 Florida Atlantic University

Strange Frequencies: Development Of A Post-Human Sequential Narrative, Jessica Young

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Posthumanism embodies a wide-ranging scope of philosophies, including works of transhumanism dealing with cybernetics or androids. Few works treat advanced technological developments like A.I. and androids as equal to, or companions to humanity. In many literary works in the genre of posthumanism, the lead characters are humans after the collapse or evolution of modern societies. Despite potentials for future technology to be equally as intelligent as humans, there remains a limited number of stories treating android or A.I. characters as main characters and narrative lenses. This project developed a posthumanist narrative that grapples with questions of humanity, spirituality ...
