The Fragmentation Of Self Within The Indian Novel, Michele Gibney Dec 2000

The Fragmentation Of Self Within The Indian Novel, Michele Gibney

Michele Gibney

With the novel Midnight’s Children, Rushdie forged a new path for novel-writing. In his epic story the main character became split into two in order to show the many facets of Indian culture. Instead of gaining an understanding of just one way of life, the reader became privy to all the stories being lived in such places as the Methwold estates, the surreal Sundarbans, and the Magician’s Ghetto. The story of one, single individual was lost in the cacophony of voices that each had their own tale to tell in Rushdie’s novel. This new form of writing ...

The World Seduces Man. His Home Grounds Him., Michele Gibney

Michele Gibney

Between Untouchable and The Bachelor of Arts there is a world of difference in the basic situations of the main characters. One is an uneducated street sweeper and the other is a University graduate, and both have a different conception of the British. However, there is also a common thread that unites the two novels in the main characters concluding acceptance of the “home”/India over the “world”/England. Thus, although different values are assigned to the importance of British colonialism within the texts, in the end each novel comes to a stand wherein Indian culture is favored over the ...


Literary Skinheads? Writing From The Right In Reunified Germany, Jay Julian Rosellini Oct 2000

Literary Skinheads? Writing From The Right In Reunified Germany, Jay Julian Rosellini

Purdue University Press Books

"Literary Skinheads? is a very nuanced, meticulously researched and vividly written study of a series of important debates in German literary circles since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the rapid political transformations that have accompanied German unification. No other book in the English-speaking world offers such a comprehensive survey of the legacy of radical conservative ideas in German political life. Rosellini not only offers trenchant interpretations of major political controversies of the last decade in Germany, but he also provides the necessary background information needed to make sense of these important public debates." Elliott Neaman, author of A ...


The Setting Sun: Japanese Post-War Sensibility, Michele Gibney May 2000

The Setting Sun: Japanese Post-War Sensibility, Michele Gibney

Michele Gibney

Osamu Dazai wrote The Setting Sun in the years directly following the end of World War II. The effects of Japan’s defeat in the War were clearly still felt, as evidenced by the characters and situations being expressed in this novel. In looking at the novel through a historical lens, I plan on placing it within the greater context of the times. I view Dazai’s work as a masterpiece at evoking the feelings that were seething beneath Japan’s conquered surface. In consequence of this, I believe that by examining the words, actions, and feelings of the characters ...


Weaving Memories Of Self-Identity: The Narratives Of Christa Wolf And The Chilean Arpilleristas, Kirsten C. Olson Jan 1998

Weaving Memories Of Self-Identity: The Narratives Of Christa Wolf And The Chilean Arpilleristas, Kirsten C. Olson

Vahe Proudian Interdisciplinary Honors Program, Senior Honors Theses

The artistic processes of both Wolf and the arpilleristas, while yet so different in their form and their origins, delve into the imaginations of their memories to create their art. For both, it is an art distinctly personal, and yet it inevitably speaks for a larger community. That they create again an individual and collective memory of the past demonstrates the transformative potential of both text and visual art, for both their personal self-identities and the world about them.


Midrash In Jewish Children's Literature, Diamond Goldin Barbara Dec 1995

Midrash In Jewish Children's Literature, Diamond Goldin Barbara

Judaica Librarianship

The term midrash has a specific meaning and a broader one. Specifically, midrash refers to the post Talmudic body of writings (post-500 C.E.) such as Midrash Rabbah and Pirke de-Rabi Eliezer. In broader terms, midrash has come to mean a Jewish story that explains, clarifies, or elaborates on an event or passage in the Torah.

There are many stories in midrasnhic sources that are appropriate and valuable to retell for children. A retelling of the story "Solomon and the Demon King," for instance, can captivate a fifth grader today who plays computer games and rides a skateboard, just as ...

Introduction To Savushun: A Novel About Modern Iran, Brian Spooner Jan 1990

Introduction To Savushun: A Novel About Modern Iran, Brian Spooner

Department of Anthropology Papers

First published in 1969, Simin Daneshvar's Savushun has gone through sixteen printings and sold half a million copies -- a record for a work of literature in modern Iran. The reason is not obscure. Daneshvar's style is sensitive and imaginative. Her story follows basic cultural themes and metaphors. It goes straight to the hearts of a generation of Iranian readers, striking special chords of emotion and memory of the recent past. Savushun enriches a generation's understanding of itself. It encap­sulates the experience of Iranians who have lived through the midcen­tury decades which led up to the ...

The Imperishable Perishable Press, Terrance Keenan Apr 1987

The Imperishable Perishable Press, Terrance Keenan

The Courier

When art and meaning come together so effectively, when craft and purpose meld so well, something precious emerges. Of the many one-of-a-kind things in the world, few have a memorable identity. In the work of Walter Hamady the art of bookmaking explores new terrain. The finished product is not a candidate for the museum or the gallery. It holds something for the eye and the mind both, something that was created by human hands to be held by human hands. Often beautiful, always different and provocative, the books of the Perishable Press are durable reminders of the creative spirit at ...

Fandom Is A Way Of Life: A Folkloristic Ethnography Of Science Fiction Fandom, David Axler Jun 1977

Fandom Is A Way Of Life: A Folkloristic Ethnography Of Science Fiction Fandom, David Axler

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

A science fiction (“sf”) fan is an individual whose interest in this literary genre has extended past reading into involvement in such things as local science fiction clubs, fan magazines (“fanzines”), and sf conventions (“cons”). Science fiction fandom is the loosely-structured, geographically-dispersed organization of these fans. Drawing on both written sources and field interviews with eight informants, the history, composition and structure of sf fandom is examined from a folkloristic viewpoint. The forms of folklore which serve to bind the individual fan to the larger social entity of fandom are detailed.

Despite its literary orientation, fandom is primarily a social ...
