Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation unites two papers intended for publication in professional journals.

Individually, each of the papers ...

Fine Bird Books, Becky S. Jordan Jan 1992

Fine Bird Books, Becky S. Jordan

Special Collections Exhibit Catalogs

The Department of Special Collections is fortunate to have a number of 19th Century illustrated bird books. These books, filled with hand-colored plates, were produced at a time when there was tremendous interest in the descriptions of new species of birds. At the same time, a new printing technique, lithography, made illustration of new species a simpler process. This combination of art and science resulted in lovely volumes like those on display.


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.


Plato And The Notion Of A Dialectical Rhetoric: Pedagogical Implications For Composition Studies, Shelly L. Hannusch Jan 1992

Plato And The Notion Of A Dialectical Rhetoric: Pedagogical Implications For Composition Studies, Shelly L. Hannusch

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

One of the most significant areas of debate within the Platonic dialogues has been Plato's conception of rhetoric. This area of interpretation has been so vast and varied that it is hard to believe that everyone has been analyzing the same dialogues. However, one view has predominated, and that is the view that Plato, as seen primarily in the Gorgias and the Phaedrus, disapproved of rhetoric and writing and has historically been its fiercest opponent.
