Good Grief: How To Lose The Ones You Love, Celine Uhl Jan 2017

Good Grief: How To Lose The Ones You Love, Celine Uhl

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

This thesis attempts to contextualize my individual experience of grief within a historical and cultural conversation about death, dying, and grieving more broadly. My father died at age 60 as the result of a failed liver transplant following years of alcoholic cirrhosis and hepatitis C. I was 16 at the time of his death, and in the room when it happened.

The genre of this project is a ...

The Storyteller's Apprentice, Kaycee Pancake Jan 2017

The Storyteller's Apprentice, Kaycee Pancake

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

J. R. R. Tolkien was a master story-teller, and I am his apprentice. As a narrator in this thesis, I am a nontraditional student studying creative writing in the pursuit of my dream to write fantasy novels for a living. I’ve been writing since childhood across various scales and genres, and have completed the first of a five novel fantasy series that takes place in a universe called Terralus. As a fantasy writer however, I have much to learn, as writers always will. I’ve been an avid fan of The Lord of the Rings since high school, and ...
