La Vida De Lazarillo De Tormes Y De Sus Fortunas Y Adversidades, Chad M. Gasta Aug 2019

La Vida De Lazarillo De Tormes Y De Sus Fortunas Y Adversidades, Chad M. Gasta

Chad M. Gasta

La vida de Lazarillo de Tormes y de sus fortunas y adversidades is considered the world’s first picaresque novel and its prototype. Published in 1554 concurrently in Spain and Antwerp by an unknown author, the book tells the story of Lazarillo, an orphaned boy who becomes an apprentice to a series of masters, each of whom train him in the ways of the world. As the adult narrator, Lázaro explains how through cunning, deception, and wit, he has been able to overcome his ignoble birth to ascend socially and prosper materially. But in the process of reading his story ...


Late-Victorian Novels, Microsociology, And Bad Dialogue, Amy Wong Aug 2019

Late-Victorian Novels, Microsociology, And Bad Dialogue, Amy Wong

Amy Wong

This essay argues that a separation between dialogue and talk has been enforced since the rejection of mimetic realism in the late nineteenth-century art of fiction debates. Both the institutionalization of formalist methods and poststructuralism since Derrida have resulted, moreover, in continued suspicion about ontological claims made about any category of "orality." Yet what has been lost in the name of poststructuralist sophistication is an appreciation of talk as an embodied, relational, and sociologically mediated form. This essay contends that revisiting dialogue with a view toward such elements—from gestures and other physiological productions to "invisible" social dynamics—unfolds ethical ...

Dreamland, Corey Hashimoto Dec 2018

Dreamland, Corey Hashimoto

Corey Hashimoto

Set eight years after three United States Marines return home from Iraq,
Dreamland explores the effect their experience has on their relationships with
their loved ones and each other. The novel focuses on the reverberating effects a
single event during the second assault on Fallujah has on three remaining
members of a doomed assignment—a drug addict, a depressed artist, and an
anxiety-stricken father —each dealing with their trauma differently. Though all
three are on a path of self-destruction, Dreamland examines the toxic power of
isolation and the redemptive quality of shared purpose.


My Blue World, Kimberly Knutsen Jun 2018

My Blue World, Kimberly Knutsen

Kimberly Knutsen

Opal Jean, age twelve, is flying to Michigan to visit her dad, who is serving a life sentence in prison for murder. Opal hasn’t seen her father in seven years, and while she longs for the “cold blue world” of her childhood, she is also struggling to break free of her father’s dark legacy.

The trip is a disaster. Luggage is lost, her mother has to “take a seat” in the airport and rattle the benzodiazepines in her purse, her teen brother attempts to order $30 worth of Coronas from room service, and Opal’s little brother is ...

The Fire At Ross's Farm.Pdf, Keith Clouten Dec 2017

The Fire At Ross's Farm.Pdf, Keith Clouten

Keith Clouten

“The Fire at Ross’s Farm” takes its story from a narrative poem of the same title by one of Australia’s best known and loved poets of the 19th century, Henry Lawson. It is the simple and perhaps typical story of two families in conflict over possession of farm land in the Australian interior. George Johnson typifies the squatter who followed closely on the heels of the explorer and pioneered the western grazing frontier by clearing and stocking large tracts of land with sheep and cattle. Sandy Ross, on the other hand, represents the struggling selector who came later ...

A Continuous Present, Margaret L. Lundberg Apr 2017

A Continuous Present, Margaret L. Lundberg

Margaret Lundberg

The readers of a text are—in many ways—also its authors, with the act of reading creating a dialog between a text already written and a text generated through reader response, creating a community along the boundary between author and reader. To illustrate that boundary, I situated myself—through my research and writing—as a responding audience to nineteenth-century Iowa farm wife Emily Hawley Gillespie, as she is revealed through the pages of her thirty-year diary. Through a constructivist paradigm, the methodology of philosophical hermeneutics, new historicism, and the creative vehicle of fiction, I entered Gillespie’s text to ...

Unbalancing Acts: Plagiarism As Catalyst For Instructor Emotion In The Composition Classroom, Ann E. Biswas Sep 2016

Unbalancing Acts: Plagiarism As Catalyst For Instructor Emotion In The Composition Classroom, Ann E. Biswas

Ann E. Biswas

In this essay, the author reflects on her experiences while researching composition instructors’ emotional responses to plagiarism. The research found that instructors faced a variety of complex and competing feelings when students plagiarized, and those responses threatened to upset relationships, power structures, and professional identities in the classroom. The author considers how and why her own emotional labor was altered in light of these findings and what this might suggest about the need for increased professional conversation in our discipline regarding the impact of emotions in the writing classroom.

Familiar Strangers: International Students In The U.S. Composition Course, Elena Lawrick, Fatima Esseili Jun 2016

Familiar Strangers: International Students In The U.S. Composition Course, Elena Lawrick, Fatima Esseili

Fatima Esseili

This chapter presents selected findings from our study of a well-established ESL writing program at a U.S. university with a large population of international undergraduate students. The study was conducted in all 13 writing sections. The instruments included demographic data from university registrars; one instructor survey, administered at the end of the semester; and two student surveys, one administered at the beginning of the semester and one at the end. The instructor survey response rate was 100% (13 teachers); the student survey response rates were 82.5% (161 students) and 88% (171 students), respectively.

The reported findings inform five ...


Gina Bonakdar Nahai: Fantasies Of Escape And Inclusion, Mojgan Behmand May 2016

Gina Bonakdar Nahai: Fantasies Of Escape And Inclusion, Mojgan Behmand

Mojgan Behmand

Cry of the Peacock, Moonlight on the Avenue of Faith, and Caspian Rain are the enticing titles of Gina Bonakdar Nahai’s Iran-focused novels, published in 1991, 1999, and 2008 respectively. And the titles hold true: the narratives reflect the pain, melancholy and dream-like beauty conveyed in the titles as they divulge characters who strive to escape the restrictions of their community, religion, government, and gender. In the meantime, as the author depicts these fantasies of escape and attempts at flight –and frequently harshly punishes them–, the characters achieve a hitherto unknown feat, namely the depiction of Jewish Iranian main ...


Mind The Gap: And 2 Other Mysteries, Jared Brown Mar 2016

Mind The Gap: And 2 Other Mysteries, Jared Brown

Jared Brown

Mind the Gap, a novel, concerns a murder that occurs in London in 2001. Eight students from a university, accompanied by two faculty members, take a "theatrical tour" of London and Stratford, during which they see and discuss twelve plays. But their tour is ruined when one member of the group is murdered. The two other mysteries in Mind the Gap and 2 Other Mysteries, "The Value of Books" and "Midtown Detectives," are relatively brief -- longer than short stories, but decidedly shorter than novels. They both present intriguing tales of suspense, and both are written in styles that contrast markedly ...

Hermann Hesse’S 'Siddhartha' As Divine Comedy, Bryan Bardine Mar 2016

Hermann Hesse’S 'Siddhartha' As Divine Comedy, Bryan Bardine

Bryan Bardine

Comedy has always been more difficult to define and pin down than tragedy. Part of the difficulty may be that comedy is, by its very nature, more protean than tragedy: comedy often takes delight in breaking the rules. Moreover, tragedy has been so memorably described in The Poetics that Aristotle may have unintentionally molded the shape of tragedy through the ages. There are different kinds of tragedy, to be sure, but they are usually variations of a similar theme and form. Perhaps because Aristotle's treatise on comedy has been lost, comedy was left free to develop in numerous ways ...
