Classical Mythology in the Secular Poetry of John Donne

Classical Mythology in the Secular Poetry of John Donne

Date: January 1967
Creator: Walker, Brena Bain
Description: It is the purpose of this thesis to examine the classical allusion in Donne's secular poetry to show that the body of such allusion is more extensive than is generally conceded. More important, this study will evaluate rather than merely catalogue the allusions in order to show ho Donne employs such allusion and in what way his poetic practice as to the employment of classical allusion is different from the practice of his contemporaries. It will be demonstrated that, with very few exceptions, Donne uses the standard myth or allusion as a foundation or departure point from which he then goes on to synthesize the myth and turn it into poetic material that is of special significance to his theme.

Cleopatra: A Comparative Critique

Cleopatra: A Comparative Critique

Date: August 1968
Creator: Orcutt, Helen Jewell Smith

Coleridge and Kant: Significant Parallels and Contrasts in Ethical and Religious Ideas

Coleridge and Kant: Significant Parallels and Contrasts in Ethical and Religious Ideas

Date: August 1969
Creator: Carr, Barbara C.
Description: One notes that Kant's philosophy became a part of Coleridge's thinking, and his devotion to its principle intensified through the years. Although Kant influenced Coleridge's aesthetics greatly, significant parallels between Kant's moral and ethical principles and Coleridge's religious doctrines are evidence of distinct influence. Particularly interesting are the views these two men had on the being and nature of God; on sin, salvation, and redemption; and on the various aspects of religion and faith.

The Comic Element in the Novels of Thomas Wolfe

The Comic Element in the Novels of Thomas Wolfe

Date: 1957
Creator: Hanig, David Daniel
Description: As to form, Wolfe's novels are deliberately loose, because that is important to his purpose. Conceiving America as an open society of potentiality, he could do no less than remain open himself. To do otherwise would have meant impotence if not sterility. In this thesis, I shall attempt to show that the episodes, divergences, and observations all illustrate and amplify this spiritual growth.

A Comparison of Christopher Marlowe's Edward II and William Shakespeare's Richard II

A Comparison of Christopher Marlowe's Edward II and William Shakespeare's Richard II

Date: January 1960
Creator: Ford, Howard Lee
Description: This study purports to examine several areas of similarity between the chronicle history plays by Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare. Edward II and Richard II are alike in many ways, most strikingly in the similarity of the stories themselves. But this is a superficial likeness, for there are many other likenesses--in purpose, in artistry, in language--which demonstrate more clearly than the parallel events of history the remarkable degree to which these plays resemble each other.

A Comparison of Morris' News from Nowhere and Life in the Twin Oaks Community

A Comparison of Morris' News from Nowhere and Life in the Twin Oaks Community

Date: December 2007
Creator: Garner, Royce Clifton
Description: It is the purpose of this paper to explore how Morris' novel relates to life in Twin Oaks, primarily as depicted in two books: Living the Dream (1983) by Ingrid Komar, a long-term visitor to the commune and Kinkade's Is It Utopia Yet? (1996). This comparison will demonstrate that the experiences of contemporary intentional communities such as Twin Oaks provide a meaningful context for reading News from Nowhere because of the similarities in goals and philosophy. It will further demonstrate that though Twin Oaks was originally inspired by a utopian novel much more in the tradition of Bellamy's work than Morris', the community's subsequent evolution has brought it much closer in philosophy to News from Nowhere than Looking Backward.
