1. Leskó, Katalin. The Cowboys of the Apocalypse .

Degree: DE – TEK – Bölcsészettudományi Kar, 2013, University of Debrecen

Through the comparison, my essay’s aim is to confirm that the two trilogies and quadrilogy are about the apocalyptic myth; however their plots, heroes, villains resemble the western very much. The analysis wants to show and prove that these films are the reinterpretation of the western and their heroes are the reincarnation of western heroes. The chapters will focus on how the elements of western films appear in the apocalyptical setting; why we can say that these two myths are so similar. Then, the heroes of the films will be analyzed by asserting they are rooted in the western hero. Finally, the villains will be interpreted as they are an integral part of western and apocalyptic films, and they form a significant part in the born of the hero. Furthermore, the essay will demonstrate that these villains are exactly the villains of the western films. Although, first of all the two myths should be examined closer and shown the similarities between them. Advisors/Committee Members: Tóth, Ágnes (advisor).

2. Smith, Cynthia M. Walter M. Miller, Jr.’s A Canticle for Leibowitz: A Study of Apocalyptic Cycles, Religion and Science, Religious Ethics and Secular Ethics, Sin and Redemption, and Myth and Preternatural Innocence.

Degree: MA, English, 2006, Georgia State University

Walter M. Miller, Jr.’s A Canticle for Leibowitz is a timeless story about apocalyptic cycles, conflicts and similarities between religion and science, religious ethics and secular ethics, sin and redemption, myth and preternatural innocence. Canticle is a very religious story about a monastery dedicated to preserving scientific knowledge from the time before nuclear war which devastated the world and reduced humanity to a pre-technological civilization. The Catholic Church and this monastery are portrayed as a bastion of civilization amidst barbarians and a light of faith amidst atheism. Unfortunately, humanity destroys the Earth once again, but Miller ends with two beacons of hope: a starship headed for the unknown to help humanity begin again and the preternaturally innocent Rachel who portends a future for similarly innocent human beings repopulating the Earth. Thus, faith ultimately triumphs over atheism even in the midst of almost total catastrophe. Advisors/Committee Members: Reiner Smolinski - Chair, Christopher Kocela, Victor A. Kramer.
