Healing Hut ~ Weaving Earth Circles Along The River Whose Waters Are Never Still, Sophia Martina Lopez

Senior Projects Spring 2019

Welcome to a woven circle of earth. The land that you walk on has birthed this hearth through my hands as an offering of earth healing connection for all who enter. We give gratitude to the Mohican people whose homeland we walk on and who call this great river Mohicanituk or “the river who flows both ways.” We acknowledge all beings who call this land home - the animals, the plants, the stones, the winds, the waters, the humans, the spirits, and all others throughout time.

Chutes And Ladders: John Ashbery's Poetics As Experience, Alexander Ibo Zondervan Jan 2019

Chutes And Ladders: John Ashbery's Poetics As Experience, Alexander Ibo Zondervan

Senior Projects Spring 2019

I’ve always found it difficult to say just what I think is happening in John Ashbery’s poetry, even when I recognize that I’ve undergone something through the course of reading. With Ashbery, I find myself becoming conscious of how I construct meaning from language, and I understand this self-reflexivity as a “poetics as experience.” Ashbery had read or at least been aware of the work of Ralph Waldo Emerson, William James, Gertrude Stein, and Wallace Stevens—all of which explore how consciousness manifests through language. I read these figures through American pragmatism, which views writing as an ...

Senior Projects Spring 2019

Senior Project submitted to The Division of Languages and Literature of Bard College.

Bound to Rise is a collection of short stories about people who discover themselves in the “fine drizzly rain” (or smirr, in Scottish lingo) of everyday life. They orient themselves and find some way forward, or they realize they have to. Thematically, it addresses a carnival (the carnivalesque), a demolition derby, multiple fires, photography, drinking, music, an eating disorder, and a birthday cake. It includes one original children’s story written in Russian and translated into English by the author.

It engages in a literary analysis based on the study of the narrative structure and the unique authorial techniques used by the author as a witness of other's pain and a listener actively engaged in the storytelling process.

On Frank Stanford's "Battlefield", Clara Brigid Allison Jan 2018

On Frank Stanford's "Battlefield", Clara Brigid Allison

Senior Projects Spring 2018

Frank Stanford's little known poem titled "The Battlefield Where The Moon Says I Love You" was published just after his suicide in 1978 and extends for approximately 17,000 lines. As the poem follows eternally 12 year old Francis through his dreams and twisted realities living in the south, it thrusts each reader into the farthest depths of disorientation using indescribably beautiful language. With no punctuation, structure, narrative, timeline, or distinction between the real and unreal, this poem exists on the far end of the experimental spectrum. My project, in response to Stanford's form, uses an alternative form ...
