Soon To Be A Major Motion Picture, Danny Mcgarr Mccarthy May 2005

Soon To Be A Major Motion Picture, Danny Mcgarr Mccarthy

English Master’s Theses

Soon To Be A Major Motion Picture is almost the first twenty thousand words of a novel. These five chapters detail Calvin Green's discovery that his dreams are being shown at the Aztec Theater in Denver, CO. Clearly, the novel has supernatural elements, and it offers a voice in the magical realism genre. However, along with the fantastic aspects of the story are a series of probing questions into the nature of artifice, privacy, and celebrity.


The Town Hall Is Filling With Boulders, Christopher Miller May 2005

The Town Hall Is Filling With Boulders, Christopher Miller

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

When I first decided that I wanted to endeavor the realization and composition of a book-length collection of poetry, I had no theme or binding conceptual idea in mind.

Third wave feminists envision themselves as taking up the torch of the 1960-1970s “second wave” of feminism, but expanding upon it by emphasizing intersectionality (the complex interaction of multiple oppressions, e.g. sexism, racism, classism) and making room for sexiness, joy, and fun in feminist organizing and theorizing. It is a discourse that strives toward and privileges intersectional analyses that create space in ...

Burnout And Other Stories, Newell Roche

Languages and Literature Undergraduate Theses

“Hey, Jake,” Maria called as she approached the back porch. “You 'sleep?” “Yep,” replied Jake gruffly, as he stroked the fat orange cat that lay curled on his lap. “Mind if I sit?” she asked. “Sit wherever you want; you own the place,” Jake responded flatly. “But I ain’t got another chair.” Maria’s dad owned the house Jake was renting, so he felt obligated to refrain from telling her to leave whenever she showed up, but he didn’t care for her very much. She was actually pretty attractive; they had even dated once in high school. Her ...
