1. Chen, Grace. Deviating from the Angelic Norm: Societal Transgression in Tennyson's "Lancelot and Elaine" .

Degree: 2012, California State University – San Marcos

While dearly beloved to the Victorians, Idylls of the King has lost much of its popularity over the course of the 20th century. Today, Idylls of the King is oftentimes labeled as pedantically adhering to the rigid social mores of the Victorian middle class, while simultaneously reestablishing patriarchal ideals and vilifying women???s sexuality. However, through this thesis, I argue that although frequently accused of inflexibility, Idylls of the King still possesses space for challenging traditional patriarchal ideology. Moments of negotiation and subversion are most apparent through a close reading of Tennyson???s ???Lancelot and Elaine.??? While the character of Elaine exhibits characteristics of the Victorian Angel of the House, Tennyson deviates from this archetype by describing Elaine as a female artist. Likewise, the character of Elaine is also transgressive through her unwavering gaze as well as her disregard for the division between the public and private spheres. Advisors/Committee Members: Stoddard Holmes, Martha (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: Tennyson; Idylls of the King; Lancelot and Elaine

2. Brown, Amelia. "A Fearsome Possibility": The Disabled Body in the Children's Novel .

Degree: 2013, California State University – San Marcos

Disability affects everyone, either first-hand or indirectly. However, discussion of disability in our culture seems to be verboten. Disabled people make up our largest minority group, but perhaps fear of physical imperfection controls the silence about disability. Taking disability out of the "problem" sphere means discussing it openly, as early as possible. Children need to be in this discussion, since they notice difference in bodies and ask about it, and are often silenced for asking. An ideal place to start the dialogue of disability with children is in their literature. Since children's literature is used quite effectively to impart didactic knowledge, why not expand that knowledge to include disability? Children's books that teach about the experience of living with a disability are already in the canon -two books by E.B. White, Stuart Little and The Trumpet of the Swan. They address the issue of living with disability in a proactive way. These two books break the silence about living with disability and are great learning opportunities for children. Advisors/Committee Members: Stoddard Holmes, Martha (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: disability; children's literature; E. B. White; Stuart Little; The Trumpet of the Swan; Multicultural Studies
