Screaming From The Inside, Kelly M. Kunze Jan 2015

Screaming From The Inside, Kelly M. Kunze

Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

This collection of fiction and nonfiction stories examines the effect of my introversion on the creative work I produce as well as the role my observational nature plays in my writing. My original intention was to write stories about introverted characters and their perspective on the world, but the stories ended up focusing on the theme of family. I was dedicated to the stories being written from an honest, organic place and the result is a manuscript that discusses family from the earnest perspective of an introvert.

Deconstructing The Body: The Exploration Of The Human Mind Through Symbols, Cassandra M. Knudsen May 2014

Deconstructing The Body: The Exploration Of The Human Mind Through Symbols, Cassandra M. Knudsen

Honors Theses

The writing of fiction is one of the most popular and enjoyable modes of self-expression; not only does it give the writer the freedom to indulge her imagination, but also allows her a particular insight into her own patterns of thought. This form of introspection is especially important to the symbolist, who hopes to convey psychological human truths through the use of symbols. Traditionally, the intentional use of symbolism is frowned upon in fiction writing, as it is seen as distracting from conveying human truth. However, this study hopes to prove through both literary review and the practice of fiction ...


My Hero, Glenn H. Fisher Apr 2014

My Hero, Glenn H. Fisher

Manuscripts

I wouldn't read this if I were you. Before you get any farther than this you should know that although I started to write a short story I never got it finished. I almost did though. It would have been a poor story any way - it's just the idea that I didn't finish what I started that irks me.

Veritas: An Adolescent Novel In A Biblical Worldview Context, Tessanna H. Curtis Apr 2013

Veritas: An Adolescent Novel In A Biblical Worldview Context, Tessanna H. Curtis

Senior Honors Theses

The secular world of literature is saturated with books sending adolescents a host of mixed signals. Contemporary young readers would benefit from literature that in some way reflects biblical truth and conveys a message that glorifies God. Such notions led to the writing of a young adult fantasy novel that introduces themes and plots that do not conflict with a Christian worldview. The protagonist does not simply react to situations around her, but is driven by specific desires that are not so easily obtained. Unlike many modern adolescent fantasies, the world is fully developed and populated by a variety of ...

The ‘Perks’ Of Controversial Texts In Curricula: The Benefit Of Young Adult Literature On Adolescents In The Classroom, Carly Hurst Jan 2013

The ‘Perks’ Of Controversial Texts In Curricula: The Benefit Of Young Adult Literature On Adolescents In The Classroom, Carly Hurst

3690: A Journal of First-Year Student Research Writing

Overview: Have you ever heard a song on the radio with a terrible beat or a screechy singer but had eloquent lyrics? Like a diamond in the rough, the true beauty is buried underneath layers of dirt. This premise can be seen in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, a young adult novel surrounded by controversy. Due to its somewhat risqué themes, the book is undoubtedly ribald, thus causing quite a flurry by parents about its use in curricula. However, this novel should not be censored because it not only integrates modern young adult literature into classrooms, relating better with ...
