The Music Of Form, Peter Elbow Jun 2006

The Music Of Form, Peter Elbow

English Department Faculty Publication Series

The concept itself of "organization" tends to be biased towards a picture of how objects are organized in space--and neglects the story of how events are organized in time. I’ll explore five ways to organize written language that harness or bind time. In effect, I'm exploring form as a source of energy.

Da Migração E Do Exílio Na Poesia De Pedro Da Silveira, Francisco Cota Fagundes Jan 2006

Da Migração E Do Exílio Na Poesia De Pedro Da Silveira, Francisco Cota Fagundes

Francisco Cota Fagundes

This study focuses on the themes of migration (in contradistinction to emigration) and exile in the poetry of Pedro da Silveira. Attention will be focused on poems related to the migrant experiences of departure and re-entry, and on insular and extra-insular exile, the latter category bearing a close relationship to what we here term the search for the island, a search that results, in the opinion of this reader, in some of the most noteworthy thematic innovations in the Silveiran poetic oeuvre.

The Needles Eye: Women And Work In The Age Of Revolution, Marla R. Miller Jan 2006

The Needles Eye: Women And Work In The Age Of Revolution, Marla R. Miller

University of Massachusetts Press Books

Among the enduring stereotypes of early American history has been the colonial Goodwife, perpetually spinning, sewing, darning, and quilting, answering all of her family’s textile needs. But the Goodwife of popular historical imagination obscures as much as she reveals; the icon appears to explain early American women’s labor history while at the same time allowing it to go unexplained. Tensions of class and gender recede, and the largest artisanal trade open to early American women is obscured in the guise of domesticity.

In this book, Marla R. Miller illuminates the significance of women’s work in the clothing ...


When The Girls Came Out To Play: The Birth Of American Sportswear, Patricia Campbell Warner Jan 2006

When The Girls Came Out To Play: The Birth Of American Sportswear, Patricia Campbell Warner

University of Massachusetts Press Books

A study of the evolution of American women’s clothing, When the Girls Came Out to Play traces the history of modern sportswear as a universal style that broke down traditional gender roles. Patricia Warner shows how this profound cultural shift, which did not reach fruition until World War II, originated during the previous century with the gradual expansion of socially acceptable physical activity for women. Behind this development was a growing interest in sports and exercise that was further nurtured by the establishment of schools of higher education for women.The participation of women in athletic pursuits previously reserved ...


Cemetery Of The Murdered Daughters: Feminism, History, And Ingeborg Bachmann, Sara Lennox Jan 2006

Cemetery Of The Murdered Daughters: Feminism, History, And Ingeborg Bachmann, Sara Lennox

University of Massachusetts Press Books

Although Austrian writer Ingeborg Bachmann (1926–1973) is widely regarded as one of the most important twentieth-century authors writing in German, her novels and stories have sometimes been viewed narrowly as portraits of women as victims. In this innovative study, Sara Lennox provides a much broader perspective on Bachmann’s work, at the same time undertaking an experiment in feminist methodology.Lennox examines Bachmann’s poetry and prose in historical context, arguing that the varied feminist interpretations of her writings are the result of shifts in theoretical emphases over a period of more than three decades. Lennox then places her ...
