Zephyrus is produced by the English Department and contains student creative writing.

"A literary magazine called Voices had been produced for a number of years prior to that, but in 1969 Professor Gatlin, with the help of Professor Will Fridy, came up with the title Zephyrus, the Roman name for the west wind, because Dr. Wood had asked that "Western" be included in the title."

Orphan, Indiana, David Dodd Lee Nov 2010

Orphan, Indiana, David Dodd Lee

The University of Akron Press Publications

Orphan, Indiana is a collection of spontaneous outbursts framed by reticence and the guiding mania of the subconscious. Profane and poignant, accidental-seeming but soaring with satirical intent, David Dodd Lee's poems capture a verisimilitude that's phenomenological, and yet of the moment.

Nothing Fatal, Sarah Perrier Oct 2010

Nothing Fatal, Sarah Perrier

The University of Akron Press Publications

What happens when love is replaced by romance? In Nothing Fatal, Sarah Perrier explores this and other questions about our contemporary understanding of dating, relationships, sex, and marriage. In the opening lines of “Too Darn Hot,” a poem fueled by the same weary ardor as Cole Porter’s song, the speaker asks, “Why sort the doubletalk from the innuendo? / They’re both lyrical.” Rather than sorting the one from the other, the poems of Nothing Fatal delight in the ways that the imperfect and seductive power of language has, for centuries, helped us find new and inventive ways to woo ...


Man Hours: The Construction Of A Poet, Kevin Gardner Oct 2010

Man Hours: The Construction Of A Poet, Kevin Gardner

English Master’s Theses

This thesis attempts to take a close look at Gardner's work in an effort to showcase these skills.

From Pound To Olson: The Avant-Garde Poet As Pedagogue, Alan Golding Oct 2010

From Pound To Olson: The Avant-Garde Poet As Pedagogue, Alan Golding

Faculty Scholarship

Ezra Pound’s sense of himself as poet-pedagogue—including his insistent desire to reform American higher education—is inseparable from his literary avant-gardism and his commitment to the principle of “discovery” or “newness.” This connection between experimental poetics and pedagogy forms a central part both of Pound’s significance as a writer and of his influence on a later avant-gardist and didact like Charles Olson, and anticipates the complexities of the subsequent relationship between American poetic avant-gardes and the academy. Olson was both a teacher at and rector of Black Mountain College, and in an unlikely conjunction, the forms of ...

E. E. Cummings: Lyrical Modernist, Emily Williams May 2010

E. E. Cummings: Lyrical Modernist, Emily Williams

Honors Projects and Presentations: Undergraduate

Poet and critic Randall Jarrell calls E. E. Cummings a “magical bootlegger . . . of language, one who intoxicates us with a clear liquor no government has legalized with its stamp” (qtd. in Alfandary 118). Cummings’ craft with language establishes him as an entertaining and provocative poet, one whose innovations to word and sentence form make his poetry easily distinguishable. His artistic independence and meticulous determination led to nearly twenty volumes of verse, a novel and a handful of plays over his lifetime (1894-1962). Despite an initial lack of public appreciation for his work, Cummings persevered, and his craft with language—at ...

The Nightingale Of Austerlitz, Lindsay Marianna Walker May 2010

The Nightingale Of Austerlitz, Lindsay Marianna Walker

Dissertations

The Nightingale of Austerlitz employs poetry, fiction, and nonfiction to articulate the theme of (mis)communication. A pliable, multi-genre approach was necessary to convey the urgency of two central characters’ desire to connect despite the impossibility of doing so. Prose interrupts and challenges the set precision of poetry in order to embody the stops and starts—the literal and figurative breakdowns—of communication. The juxtaposition of genres dramatizes dialogue, silence, affective distance, and desire. Song, sound, repetition (using lullaby, referencing music, thematizing the ear) further assert the power of language as performance and aesthetics as consolation, and provoke a particular ...
