Gentleman George Hunt Pendleton: Party Politics And Ideological Identity In Nineteenth-Century America, Thomas S. Mach Jan 2007

Gentleman George Hunt Pendleton: Party Politics And Ideological Identity In Nineteenth-Century America, Thomas S. Mach

Faculty Books

George Hunt Pendleton is a significant but neglected figure in the history of nineteenth-century politics. A Democrat from Cincinnati, Ohio, Pendleton led the mid-western faction of the party for much of the nineteenth century. He served in the Ohio Senate for one term before serving in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1857 until 1865. He was a leader of the Extreme Peace Democrats during the Civil War and was General George B. McClellan's running mate in the presidential campaign of 1864. Losing both the election and his seat in the House, he spent almost fifteen years out ...


The Double Sunrise : A Novel And An Accompanying Exegesis, Australian National Identity And The Double Sunrise, Lynne Leonhardt Jan 2007

The Double Sunrise : A Novel And An Accompanying Exegesis, Australian National Identity And The Double Sunrise, Lynne Leonhardt

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

This thesis comprises a historical novel entitled 'The Double Sunrise' and an exegesis entitled 'Australian National Identity and "The Double Sunrise'". The novel contains three books. The narrative starts in Book I through the perspective of twelve-year-old, fatherless Virginia. The introductory scene, set in 1957, depicts the girl's consciousness and self-consciousness at the wedding of her mother, Valerie, a former English war-bride and war-widow, to her second husband Noel. When the newly married couple leave for their honeymoon, Virginia is left in the care of her aunt, Attie, (her father's twin sister) who lives on a farm in ...


Behind The Lines: War Resistance Poetry On The American Homefront Since 1941, Philip Metres Dec 2006

Behind The Lines: War Resistance Poetry On The American Homefront Since 1941, Philip Metres

Philip Metres

Behind the Lines investigates American war resistance poetry from the Second World War through the Iraq wars. Rather than simply chronicling the genre, Philip Metres argues that this poetry gets to the heart of who is authorized to speak about war and how it can be represented. As such, he explores a largely neglected area of scholarship: the poet’s relationship to dissenting political movements and the nation. In his elegant study, Metres examines the ways in which war resistance is registered not only in terms of its content but also at the level of the lyric. He proposes that ...

Bracelet, Gene Washington

Gene Washington

ONE ACT PLAY: The lovers, JACK and JILL, have had a falling out. JILL agrees to give him a second chance. When they meet. JACK brings her a gift, a bracelet. JILL is reading a book, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus. He has had, with the help of his jeweler, "My love, more than yesterday" engraved on one side and, on the other, "My love, less than tomorrow." JILL does not understand the intention of "less than tomorrow"; nor does she accept JACK's interpretation of it. She rejects him and the bracelet. WOMAN, looking for her ...


Song Of The Chamois Hunter, Gene Washington Dec 2006

Song Of The Chamois Hunter, Gene Washington

Gene Washington

This is a response prose/poem to a notice in National Geographic, July 2007: It wasn't the cold or a fall that killed him, scientists say. The Iceman, a Bronze Age hunter whose 5,300-year-old frozen body was discovered in the Alps, was shot through the back with an arrow and likely died in agony.


A Hard Man Is Good To Find, Gene Washington Dec 2006

A Hard Man Is Good To Find, Gene Washington

Gene Washington

A short play. 4 Characters 1 female and 3 males. A pastiche of Hemingway. This play is essentially about female choice, a well-documented phenomenon throughout the animal kingdom. This accounts, in part, for the mix of characters and the effects of their different genders. In order for the qualities that ground JILL’s character (her discontent with JACK, her sensuality, skill with language, etc.), there must be at least two males exhibiting salient “polar” male traits for her to choose between.

Book Review: The Columbia Guide To American Indian Literatures Of The United States Since 1945, Edited By Eric Cheyfitz. New York: Columbia University Press, Sebastian Braun Dec 2006

Book Review: The Columbia Guide To American Indian Literatures Of The United States Since 1945, Edited By Eric Cheyfitz. New York: Columbia University Press, Sebastian Braun

Sebastian Braun

This newest guide to modern Native American literature is divided in two parts. The first part consists of the editor's introduction to the context of American Indian literatures. The second part has four chapters, one each
providing analysis of literary works in fiction, poetry, drama, and nonfiction and introducing a selection of authors and works in these categories. As I do not wish to critique the selections of writers, nor the biographies of
the selected authors, this review will focus on the book's overall, theoretical approach to Native literatures which defines the text.


Book Review: Crazy Horse. A Lakota Life, By Kingsley Bray. Norman: University Of Oklahoma Press, Sebastian Braun Dec 2006

Book Review: Crazy Horse. A Lakota Life, By Kingsley Bray. Norman: University Of Oklahoma Press, Sebastian Braun

Sebastian Braun

In the flurry of books on Crazy Horse, yet another text depicting the legendary Lakota's by now mythical life might seem superfluous at best, that is, if it truly is just another larger-than-life fictional biography. Luckily, Bray has written a text that reads as far removed from the usual Crazy Horse literature as possible.
