Reinventing Language, Vowel By Colorful Vowel, Clark Lunberry Dec 2017

Reinventing Language, Vowel By Colorful Vowel, Clark Lunberry

Clark Lunberry

A Fable of a Fable, or “The Story of One of My Follies”: After he’d invented “the color of vowels,” regulated the “form and movement of each consonant,” the young poet then, applying his “instinctive rhythms” to the task, proudly proclaimed that he had alchemically created “a poetic language accessible, some day, to all the senses.” Notably, with his project in place, this poet, Arthur Rimbaud, tells us that he was then quick to “reserve translation rights.” This legal move on the poet’s part was perhaps thought initially necessary because, as he notes in 1873, the described synesthetic ...


Bodies Of Water: Somebody | Nobody (For E.D.), Clark Lunberry Dec 2017

Bodies Of Water: Somebody | Nobody (For E.D.), Clark Lunberry

Clark Lunberry

On a pond adjacent to the University of North Florida’s Thomas G. Carpenter Library, parts of Emily Dickinson’s well-known poem about being a “Nobody” were recently written on the water. During the fall of 2014, the familiar words of that poem’s opening line – “I’m Nobody! Who are you?” – appeared to float upon the library’s pond, reflecting vividly in the light of day (yet disappearing entirely in the dark of night). While inside the library’s large open stairway, on the tall windows that face directly out onto that pond, the first line of the poem ...


That’S The Beauty Of It, Or, Why John Ashbery Is Not A Painter, Clark Lunberry Dec 2017

That’S The Beauty Of It, Or, Why John Ashbery Is Not A Painter, Clark Lunberry

Clark Lunberry

The poet John Ashbery lived in Paris from roughly 1955 to 1965. It was during this period that Ashbery began writing art reviews, often examining the work of various Americans also living in Paris at this time. Among the many painters Ashbery was to review and publish about, one was the Chicago-born, Paris-based abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell and an exhibition of hers at a Paris gallery in 1964. In this essay I examine the early, more ““abstract”” poetry that Ashbery was developing during this period, thinking about it alongside the paintings of Mitchell (and, in particular, his writings about them ...

A Checklist For Mortals: Preparing For Death’S Arrival, Becky Daniel Dec 2017

A Checklist For Mortals: Preparing For Death’S Arrival, Becky Daniel

Professional Projects from the College of Journalism and Mass Communications

We learn everything from our parents—how to walk, talk and treat potential life partners. Yet our culture in the United States makes it difficult to talk to our parents about death and those consequences have a real impact. Closing a loved one’s estate can stretch from months to years without proper planning. While death is constant, the death industry is not. It is ever changing. And while all lives have equal value, there are many preparations that one person may need (veteran, parent, lotto winner) while another does not. The best way to prepare for death is to ...

Swift's Scheduling, Gaming Death In Order To Demystify Death: What's At Stake?, Gene Washington

Gene Washington

In M. A. K. Halliday's way of thinking one employs the grammatical structure of a text, as well as a conventional critical account, to "motivate to prominence" what is at stake with this or that text. The assumption is that a particular reading of this or that text is a phenomenon of processing linguistic data within an interpretative framework. So it is worthwhile to examine how the text creates points of emphasis and importance through precise patterns in its grammatical structure. The functions of grammar (also known under the title of London School Stylistics) tries to combine quantitative linguistic ...

The Tactics Of Confrontation: Documentary Epistemology In The Fiction Of W.G. Sebald, Adam Pieroni Dec 2017

The Tactics Of Confrontation: Documentary Epistemology In The Fiction Of W.G. Sebald, Adam Pieroni

Graduate Theses

Of the many enigmatic features of W.G. Sebald's fiction, perhaps the most perplexing is the author's uncanny ability to convey a topic while avoiding explicit reference to it. This is especially true in regard to the Holocaust, a topic Sebald rarely labels with terms traditionally associated with its history, but which arguably constitutes the ethical core of the works. Partially in response to historian Saul Frieländer's suggestion that literature may potentially offer cohesion to "the growing fragmentation of the history of the Nazi period" ("Trauma" 52), this thesis investigates the relationship between Sebald's unique stylistics ...

From The Boston Stone Jail, 1775, Jean C. O'Connor

The Montana English Journal

Primary sources can open doors to stories we can only imagine. I share the discovery of an actual letter written by American patriot James Lovell in September of 1775, the more startling because in my research for my historical fiction novel The Cause I had already read a clerk-written version of the letter. I encourage teachers to utilize primary sources to entice their students’ development of narrative, and offer links to excellent sources from the Montana Historical Society.
