A work of fiction by Rachel M. Wootten.


Temporary Quarters, Monica M. Kamps Jan 2000

Temporary Quarters, Monica M. Kamps

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

For several years, I have been moving from place to place, and at each new address, I have known precisely when I would be leaving. Though I feel that I bonded with the landscape and people of each individual locale, I never could seriously call it home. From Stevens Point, Wisconsin to Americus, Georgia to Ames, Iowa, I have been moving elsewhere at all times. The poetry I have written for Temporary Quarters demonstrates my connection with the landscape more directly, while the fiction seems to reflect more upon what I have learned about the people in each region. Perhaps ...


Cyclorama: A Collection Of Short Fiction And Poetry About The Lives Of Women, Kata O'Bannon Alvidrez Jan 1999

Cyclorama: A Collection Of Short Fiction And Poetry About The Lives Of Women, Kata O'Bannon Alvidrez

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Cyclorama is a compilation of poems and short stories, ranging from short-shorts to the more traditional short story form, all dealing with the issues facing women from early childhood through old age. Happy endings are for the most part missing, but this is a part of the American female experience-lives filled with and formed by a vast range of experiences that dictate the difference between right and wrong, disappointments that paralyze the human spirit for days or even lifetimes, life lessons that teach women the rules of being the daughters, mothers, and wives our society expects. Some women love their ...


Eleven Seconds Underwater, Matthew W. Vadnais Jan 1999

Eleven Seconds Underwater, Matthew W. Vadnais

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Eleven seconds underwater is an original novel that uses a series of first person narratives to weave the story of the Grand Forks flood of 1997 and, in particular, its effects upon a community forged in a river valley famous for its winters. The book uses theses narratives to explore connection, loss, self, and ultimately the difficulties of writing something meaningful about one's own life and experiences.

Father Of The Man: Two Fictional Stories, Ernest Mark Stableford Jan 1994

Father Of The Man: Two Fictional Stories, Ernest Mark Stableford

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

For weeks Leonard Littlefield has had no relief from the dull warm pressure in his bladder. Sitting in the waiting room of the Medical Multi-Imaging Facility in Portland, he's worried someone will say something about the wad of sterile cotton lining his jockey shorts. As though maybe they could tell, or even care. Since the biopsy five days before, he's needed the pads to absorb the leaking.

Finch, Burney, Barbauld And The Brontes: Feminine Identity, Lori Ann Davis Jan 1992

Finch, Burney, Barbauld And The Brontes: Feminine Identity, Lori Ann Davis

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Modern readers of literature have occasionally noticed similarities in the themes and imagery of British women writers. These similarities have been argued as springing from either a shared cultural heritage or a gender-specific biological experience. Proponents of the 'nurture' camp suggest that common life experiences within western culture, including a shared literary history, political invisibility, and domestic responsibilities which set definite limits on intellectual pursuits worked to create in these women a shared consciousness, intimately connected to their personal identities, which encodes a distinctly feminine imprint on much of their work. Proponents of the 'nature' camp, on the other hand ...


The Woman Question In Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre: The Interaction Of Romanticism And Mid-Nineteenth-Century Victorian England, Hsiu-Sui Chang Jan 1992

The Woman Question In Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre: The Interaction Of Romanticism And Mid-Nineteenth-Century Victorian England, Hsiu-Sui Chang

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Near the end of the twentieth century, various and even contradictory literary criticisms are available. Which one is best for interpretation? Specifically, which one is best for interpreting Jane Eyre? The answers vary. Terry Eagleton, for example, declares that "there are indeed Marxist and feminist theories of literature which ... are more valuable" since his hypothesis ts that "literature . . . is vitally engaged with the living situations of men and women: it is concrete rather than abstract". What he means is that literature occurs in a social context.

Siouxland Cultivation: Frederick Manfred's Farm Novels, Keith E. Fynaardt Jan 1991

Siouxland Cultivation: Frederick Manfred's Farm Novels, Keith E. Fynaardt

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Manfred has written sixteen novels, seven "ruminations" (a word he uses to describe his semi-autobiographical works), two books of short stories, two books of poetry, and a collection of essays. He has also published conversations with John R. Milton, and his letters from 1932-1954 were collected and published in 1989. In 1951 he said, "I have approximately (and optimistically) but some seventy years to spend on this earth and I haven't got the time to waste if I want to come within a thousandth of living my potential". Those who know him are not surprised at what he has ...

Catskill Stories, Linda Morganstein Jan 1991

Catskill Stories, Linda Morganstein

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

I saw my old friend Moses in People magazine yesterday. He's leading Quincy Parker through a mob of reporters. Parker is wearing jail clothes and handcuffs, but he looks like a Chivas Regal ad. If anyone looks like the criminal, it's Moses, his disheveled attorney. Poor Moses. Almost sixteen years since I've seen him and he continues to resemble a disreputable stork, the way his skinny neck sticks out from his collar.

Moses defends the notorious and the reprehensible. Child pornographers, mass murderers, dope-selling politician's sons. Quincy Parker is the worst yet. Most people think Moses ...


The Young Woman Who Did, Elyse J. Lord Jan 1991

The Young Woman Who Did, Elyse J. Lord

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

What follows is but one representation of how lift might have been for a select group of people in the United States in 1893. While I have often relied upon history to develop my plot—have even borrowed peoples' names, reputations, and actions to help my plot unfurl—what I have compiled is, at best, a fictional recreation. The real Dr. S. Weir Mitchell did indeed instruct numerous women to take a rest cure (including the real Charlotte Perkins Gilman), but these women were not left unsupervised in the manner that Winnie was. And to the best of my knowledge ...

Bread For The Moon, Jennie Elizabeth Versteeg Jan 1989

Bread For The Moon, Jennie Elizabeth Versteeg

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

A thunderstorm is trundling in along the interstate. / The sky is the color of pondwater, filled / with clouds, pink with dust, / sliding, colliding, gathering / in rows like abacus beads. / The air is full of seasalt, and sweatsalt, / and lightning riding dry. / Crackling leaves as big as my fist skate along my path. / They fall like sparrows, and the wind / walks down my spine, pushing / me home, and to you.
