1. Degerström, Marie. The Boy Who Couldn’t Grow Up : En tematisk analys av döden i J. M. Barries drama om Peter Pan.

Degree: Film and Literature, 2018, Linnaeus University

The aim of this study is to analyse the thematic purpose of death in J.M. Barries play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up. Peter Pan, the Darlings and Neverland each get analysed in separate chapters, to get a fuller understanding of their relation to death. This has been done through the use of copingtheory, and comparisons to earlier myths about catabasis, Pan, and British changelings. Further support has been found through earlier works written about the subject, to deepen the understanding of death’s part in this play for children. The essay concludes that the children in the play are deathly ill – and thus Neverland and Peter Pan are representations of the afterlife, and a spirit which guides children on from this life in to the next.

2. Gordon, Joel Aaron. “Opening up the World Below”: A New ‘Reading’ of Ancient Greek Eschatological Topography .

Degree: University of Otago

This study presents a new methodology for reading ancient Greek eschatological topography. The crux of this reading is a balancing of the tension between the holism of an eschatological imagining and the inherent fluidity – i.e., those inconsistencies which inevitably emerge – within eschatological reflection. While traditional methodologies excise inconsistencies from their texts, having labelled these as interpolations, this study champions the inclusion of such material by analyzing the deeper layers of thematic/narrative meaning to which they contribute. Therefore, this reading does not adhere to a this world, spatial-physical interpretation of topography but a narratively-focused, hyperspatial/hyperphysical one which I have termed “connotative word painting”. The scope of this study restricts the demonstration of this reading to the Hades of Homer’s Odyssey. This limitation is a cogent one, given the pre-eminence of Homeric epic and eschatology within both the ancient and modern worlds. In order to provide a reading which is detailed in nature and broad in scope, this study addresses three specific conceptualizations of eschatological topography: (1) the description of a single geographical feature, here the Grove of Persephone (Od. 10.508-511); (2) the concept of localization, in particular Hades’ dual presentation as both a subterranean and a superterranean realm; and, (3) the tertium quid which unites physical-real and eschatological-imaginary landscapes via a reading of the “big four” nekuomanteia as natural deathscapes. In addition to the novelty of the overarching connotative word painting methodology, the analyses of the latter two conceptualizations also utilize the progressive paradigms of dual localization and natural deathscapes – frameworks which themselves proceed from the connotative word painting approach – and thus affirm this reading as “new”. These three investigations concur that eschatological topography is best read within a hyperspatial context, rather than that of the physical, real world. Thus, the connotative word painting approach provides a holistic rendering of topographical inconsistencies by allowing for a ‘both… and’ reading of contradictory material, rather than the ‘either/or’ reading required by the interpolative approach. This is achieved by recognizing the distinct narrative orientation of the topographical phenomena within eschatological settings, a reading according to which topographical features and concepts embody the wider aims and themes of the literature/imagining within which they occur. Thus, the connotative word painting approach re-orientates the interpretation of eschatological topography away from simply denoting spatial or physical matters to, instead, emphasizing the function of such material as a narrative tool which provides subtle nuance and shape to the act of eschatological reflection.

3. De Araujo - Rousset, Anthony. Figures françaises de Dante : un mythe romantique : French figures of Dante : a romantic myth.

Degree: Docteur es, Philosophie - Etude des systèmes, 2018, Lyon

Ce travail construit une dantologie transcendantale fondée sur la fécondité et la légitimité du commentarisme français tout au long du dix-neuvième siècle. Le nom et l’œuvre de Dante progressent dans la vie de l’esprit et de la culture après la sidération de la Révolution, avec la naissance, l’apogée, le déclin et les suites métamorphosées du Romantisme. Un amour soumis à la loi de la divisibilité de quelques fragments de la Divine Comédie se transforme graduellement en une première dantologie. Des figures archétypiques issues de domaines hétérogènes donnent une armature conceptuelle et poétique à cette double spirale entrecroisée : la lecture des textes de Dante éclairée par la critique contemporaine ; et la compréhension des morphologies divergentes du Romantisme en la diversité de ses moments. Dante est un penseur de l’histoire, des enjeux politiques, du christianisme jusqu’en ses limites internes et externes, du fait initiatique, de la différence sexuelle dans laquelle UN POETE SE TRANSHUMANISE PARCE QU’IL EST AIME PAR BEATRICE APRES AVOIR ETE GUIDE PAR VIRGILE. Chateaubriand, Balzac, Nerval et Hugo sont les parangons d’une lecture tournée vers un usage libre, infidèle mais hautement créateur. Fauriel, Ozanam et Aroux représentent la volonté d’une critique raisonnée de la doctrine philosophique et théologique dantesque. Dante et son œuvre s’inscrivent au cœur des mille agitations d’un dix-neuvième siècle qui reconfigure la France et l’Europe. La rémanence de l’espérance du voyageur cherchant à revoir les étoiles et à contempler la Trinité influence les réminiscences du progressisme plurivoque. La figure d’airain du poète acrimonieux et vengeur accompagne les esprits désenchantés. Celui qui devient l’égal des dieux après avoir affronté une Dame qui tue autant qu’elle ennoblit inspire les mystiques et ceux qui cherchent une nouvelle spiritualité. Le chantre de la foi, revenu dans le giron de l’Église après la conversion de son amour, réchauffe les catholiques. L’homme qui dédouble les pouvoirs comme les soleils de Rome devient un interlocuteur privilégié après l’Empire. Nous ne cherchons pas une liste exhaustive, thématique ou chronologique, notionnelle ou par auteur. À travers des exemples ayant valeur de paradigmes, nous montrons comment cette union de connaissance et d’usage créateur construit des FIGURES de Dante qui entrent en écho avec les inquiétudes et les espérances, les attentes et les angoisses, du Romantisme. Alors Dante et son « Poème Sacré » ne sont plus seulement des occasions de références. Ils deviennent un MYTHE au cœur du rapport entre mystique religieuse et initiation par l’Éternel-Féminin, engagement dans l’histoire et culte de la Beauté, aspiration à un sursaut régénérateur du monde et conscience amère du tragique de la scission entre l’Idéal et le Réel, mythe du Tombeau et promesse d’élévation spirituelle. Parmi les voies possibles, NOUS DEFENDONS UN DANTE SE VOUANT AU CULTE INITIATIQUE DES TOMBEAUX ET DES « DAMES QUI ONT L’INTELLECT D’AMOUR. » Il appartient à un catholicisme élargi, dilaté –… Advisors/Committee Members: Pinchard, Bruno (thesis director).
