Dreamriser : writing the postcolonial body in Les Murray's Fredy Neptune

Corbett, Sarah January 2013 (has links)
This thesis is presented in two parts. The first part, Dreamriser, is a verse-novel in two books, the second part a critical essay, ‘Writing the Postcolonial Body’ in Les Murray’s 1997 verse-novel Fredy Neptune. Dreamriser is split into two books. In ‘The Runner’ Felix Morning wakes on a backstreet of a strange city with no memory of who he is. Flick shows him the way to The Bunker, an underground club where he meets the Dreamriser, a mysterious woman he half remembers. She gives him a parcel he must deliver to the place of the lost things. In ‘Pinky’ Iain and Esther meet on a train and they start a love affair. Damaged by her experience with men, Esther has been sent by the Dreamriser cult to take her revenge. When she falls in love with Iain she must make a choice between destruction and union. Dreamriser was inspired by the idea of the verse-novel, its possibilities and parameters. But where Fredy Neptune is an extended narrative through Twentieth Century history, Dreamriser messes with time frames and layers of reality and is located within the lost interior ‘history’ of the protagonists. I was interested in finding out how far I could push the lyric under the pressure of narrative, and play with the idea of linear narrative under the pressure of the lyric. I hoped to achieve a sense of the lyric poem across the whole structure of the ‘verse-novel’ as much as within each stanza, section or chapter. In this way Dreamriser mimics rather than attempts to emulate the conventional idea of the novel. Fredy Neptune moves towards and is constantly seeking that resolution and return to wholeness for its protagonist; Dreamriser refuses and actively undermines expectations of resolution and conclusion. Where Dreamriser and Fredy Neptune meet is in their treatment of the body as subject and material for the poem, in the location of the mind and the myriad layers of identity within the body, and in its consideration of gender and gender relations. In the following critical essay, ‘Writing the Postcolonial Body in Les Murray’s Fredy Neptune’ I look at how Murray addresses postcolonial identity in Australia in his verse novel through the medium of the body. History, gender, national identity and the poem itself are embodied in the very act of writing and in the physical experience of reading the poem. I argue that Murray writes identity through the body in the poem of Fredy Neptune.

Vers un campus novel franco-ontarien : suivi de Sur une clôture

Chayer, Martin January 2017 (has links)
Cette thèse en création est consacrée au campus novel (qu’on pourrait traduire par «roman universitaire»). Son premier volet explore la nature et la portée de ce sous-genre romanesque issu des littératures britannique et américaine. Le deuxième, les fragments romanesques Sur une clôture, constituent un court campus novel franco-ontarien, fondé sur l’expérience d’un bachelier en lettres françaises à l’Université d’Ottawa. Un retour réflexif englobant les lectures de corpus et théoriques, et le processus de création lui-même, conclut le tout. L’ensemble de la démarche s’inspire largement du roman This Side of Paradise (1920) de F. Scott Fitzgerald, et donc cette thèse présente en quelque sorte un effort de réécriture accompagné de notions théoriques et critiques. Sur une clôture, tout comme This Side of Paradise, se présente à la fois comme une fiction librement inspirée de l’expérience personnelle de son auteur et comme un commentaire social et une satire du système d’éducation, au temps présent. À cet effet, l’esthétique comme le sujet de Fitzgerald (mais aussi ceux d’extraits de plusieurs autres romans universitaires) sont repris, voire pastichés, et sont ensuite étudiés dans la rétroaction de cette thèse. Il en résulte un aperçu de la réalité contemporaine, subjective quant à son auteur, notamment du bilinguisme en Ontario, de la culture franco-ontarienne, et du sentiment (ou ressentiment) de la génération des Millénaires.

Lizzie's Story: Scenes from a Country Life

Chalkley, Linda Brown 12 1900 (has links)
An episodic novel set in rural north Texas in the 1920s, this thesis concerns the life of Lizzie Brown and her son Luke. Suffering from a series of emotional shocks combined with a chronic hormonal imbalance, Lizzie is hospitalized shortly after Luke's fourth birthday. Just as she is to be discharged, he husband dies unexpectedly. Viewed by society as incompetent to care for Luke and operate her ranch alone, she finds herself homeless. She returns to her brother's home briefly, but eventually is declared NCM and institutionalized. The story also concerns Luke, his relationships with his father and other relatives who care for him in Lizzie's absence. As he matures, he must deal with society's attitudes regarding mental illness and orphans. The story ends with Lizzie's funeral when he is twenty.

Development of awareness : the power of society and men in the Saudi women's novel

Aldakheel, Khalid Abdulaziz January 2012 (has links)
This thesis investigates two of the most important themes concerning women’s problems that have been tackled by Saudi female novelists between 1958-2011 with special attention to the development of their thoughts about the issues from stage to stage. To investigate the two powers over women explored in Saudi women’s novels, the works have been divided into four separate and important stages and each stage has its own thematic and stylistic charactersics. The thesis consists of seven chapters starting with an Introduction, in which the importance of studying the subject is detailed; the theortical framework and the methodology of this study is also discussed. A section is devoted to reviewing previous studies of the Saudi novel in general, as well as studies published on the women’s novel. The status of women in Saudi society is discussed in Chapter Two which covers the structure of Saudi society, women’s education, women’s employment and the effects on the status of women in Saudi Arabia of the events of September 11th, 2001. The other four chapters are divided according to the stages of development of Saudi women’s novels. In each chapter, two novels are analysed: the first novel represents the first theme examined in the thesis, which is the authority of society over women. The second novel represents the second theme, which is the Saudi novelists’ vision regarding the relationships between the sexes in Saudi society. In addition, a section in each chapter is devoted to an examination of the characteristic of the themes in each stage by comparing and contrasting sample novels with the case study novels. The conclusion summarises the most important points of this research with reference to the findings of this study. It also suggests some further research in the field of Saudi literature.

Enemy Mine

Gillenwater, Chelsea R 01 January 2016 (has links)
This thesis comprises the opening of a novel-in-progress, which takes place in an alternate universe where certain ordinary humans are born with superpowers. One superpowered public hero, Captain Frost, attempts to save a notorious, superpowered criminal called the Terror, in the hopes of interrogating him about a recent spate of superhero deaths—but the Terror’s sudden death casts doubt on Frost’s ability to handle the case. Meanwhile, a team of powered and non-powered criminals, among them a scientist who calls himself Dr. Fiend, scheme to fill the power vacuum left by the Terror. Dr. Fiend commits to a break-in that will allow him to examine the Terror’s body for evidence of how he was able to repeatedly defeat Frost and how his strategy and skills might be used to undermine Frost’s control of the city.
