"The Passionate Struggle into Conscious Being": the Pollyanalytic Content of D. H. Lawrence's Novels

"The Passionate Struggle into Conscious Being": the Pollyanalytic Content of D. H. Lawrence's Novels

Date: December 1970
Creator: Cox, James T.
Description: D. H. Lawrence left one of the most diverse collections of literary works ever contributed to the literature of the English language; the Lawrence canon contains a body of material which includes novels, short fiction, poetry, drama, literary criticism, travel essays, and philosophical writings. Since Lawrence is generally considered a novelist, the problem arises concerning the relationship between his novels and his other writings. In this case the concentration will be upon Lawrence's philosophical writings or what Lawrence called his pseudo-philosophy--his "pollyanalytics."

The Humanism of George Orwell

The Humanism of George Orwell

Date: December 1971
Creator: Hale, Jeffrey Lee
Description: This paper argues that George Orwell was a myth maker in the twentieth century, an age of existential perplexities. Orwell recognized that man is innately "patriotic," that the will-to-believe is part of his nature, but that the excesses of scientific analysis have disrupted the absolutes of belief. Through the Organic Metaphor, Orwell attempted to reconstruct man's faith into an aesthetic, and consequently moral, sensibility. Proposing to balance, and not replace, the Mechanistic Metaphor of industrial society, Orwell sought human progress along aesthetic lines. "Socialism" was his political expression of the Organic Metaphor: both advocated universal integrity in time and space.

Creator: Gose, Barbara Baker
Description: The problem undertaken in this thesis is a study of Ayn Rand's political theory as presented in her writings.
