Must Pay Now, David C. Perkins Dec 2010

Must Pay Now, David C. Perkins

UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones

These poems attempt to stand amidst the towering shadows of Enlightenment. One of these pillars involves the newfound land from a collective western European vantage and these lands are called the Americas. This space is where these poems are located. They suckle at the monolithic breasts of Enlightened Romance as did Romulus and Remus to the She-Wolf. The poems in their own originality engage with writers such as Jonathan Edwards, Alice Notley, Susan Howe, Frank O’Hara, William Carlos Williams, Walt Whitman, Christina Rossetti, William Blake, and John Cage. If there ever was such a thread in tradition, these people ...

Moving Through Fear: A Conversation With Susan Campbell Bartoletti, Jennifer L. Fabbi, Amy L. Johnson

Library Faculty Publications

Prior to its release in August 2010, Susan Campbell Bartoletti's newest book, They Called Themselves the K.K.K.: The Birth of an American Terrorist Group (2010), received an incredibly positive response in the form of starred reviews from School Library Journal, Booklist, Publisher's Weekly, Horn Book, and Kirkus Reviews.

1942 Women Writers At War, George T. Sipos

George T. Sipos

Used as the premise for a comparison between writings of Korean and Japanese female writers, Ch’oe Chŏnghŭi`s Nogikushō (The Wild Chrysanthemum) is the main text analyzed in this article. The authors her work is compared with on the Japanese side are Sata Ineko, Hayashi Fumiko and Yoshiya Nobuko.

World Languages and Cultures Publications

On a winter’s night in 1957 (or 1959)1 a guionista, or writer of comics, is working late in the atelier of his Buenos Aires home when a man dressed in futuristic clothing materializes in the chair across from him [Fig. 1]. The man tells the writer that he travels through time, searching the centuries for those he has lost. He has been called by hundreds of names, the most apt of which is el Eternauta [the Eternaut] because of his “triste y desolada condición de peregrino de los siglos” [sad and desolate condition as a time pilgrim] (EtI_OSL ...
