1. Knight, Ellen Fletcher. Holy lands.

Degree: 2012, Western Carolina University

On the surface, “Holy Lands” seems to be simply a collection of poetry examining the relationship between people and the land. The poems’ subjects all revolve around family or nature. However, within these poems, two narratives emerge that deepen the connection between these two agents. The main narrative of this collection is two-fold: there is the story of my family and our land; and there is the story of First Snake, the snake from the Garden of Eden. The importance of recording history, and the acceptance that we change as our reality does, tie these stories together. Both stories chart the changes in land and the people/creatures who interact with that land. The collection is divided into two sections reminiscent of the Old and New Testament. The first section presents the story of the farmland and introduces a family, much like the Old Testament told the story of a people and their land. The first section ruminates on the farm and its decline. The second section introduces the voice of First Snake. First Snake offers the possibility of redemption through understanding the process of change; we must accept and embrace change, move with it, and not regret its occurrence. “Holy Lands” consistently uses Biblical imagery and colloquial language to seat the poems in a thoroughly southern reality. By using common and regional language, the poems are able to humbly approach issues of faith, family, and the importance of interacting with out world.; family, land, poetry, southern Advisors/Committee Members: Catherine Carter (advisor).

2. Bailey, David Bradley. "As-Yet-Still-Forgiven Past": Dylan Thomas and Nostalgia.

Degree: MA, Department of Literature and Philosophy, 2008, Georgia Southern University

Dylan Thomas exhibited a variety of nostalgic influences within his poetry. A careful study of his life will reveal a nostalgia that evolved from adolescent musings upon an ideal past, to a self-destructive urge to return to innocence through death. Thomas incorporates a variety of historical influences within this nostalgia, but his primary influence is ultimately his own tormented past. This study not only focuses on the personal nostalgia of one man, but the variety of ways nostalgia can affect people, history and society as sociological force.

3. F. Falcone. MILTON'S INWARD LIBERTY A STUDY OF CHRISTIAN LIBERTY FROM THE PROSE TO PARADISE LOST.

Degree: 2012, Università degli Studi di Milano

Twenty Eleven was a year of revolutions in northern Africa and the Middle East. Rising in Tunisia, the revolutionary wave has spread through Egypt, Libya, Syria and other countries. The common denominator of all insurgencies has been the people’s desire to shake off a long-endured yoke of tyranny which had resulted in a stagnant economy, poor life conditions and poorer public liberties. The word ‘democracy’ has become the catalyst of all aspirations. However, where the overthrowing of the dictator has succeeded, reform has been slow to come to pass, opening the door to new, potentially worse, forms of tyranny. The revolution John Milton envisioned during the years of England’s Interregnum was itself one of liberty. Toward such end he worked tirelessly for some two decades. He worked to see liberty projected in all areas of social and political life. Criticism has largely read this as the result of Milton’s apprehension of individual liberty as only fully definable within the context of public liberties. The present work argues that liberty is more appropriately seen in Milton as the rightful portion of the Christian man. In other words, liberty is more appropriately defined in Milton as Christian liberty. Liberal laws and institutions might afford relative liberties, through negotiation of individual and collective freedom, but never true liberty, the latter residing within: the man who was inwardly a slave, a slave must remain, irrespective of outward liberties. However, the man who was inwardly free, free must remain, irrespective of outward restraint. Inasmuch as it entails the restoration of mind and conscience from sin to inward liberty, Christian liberty is found setting the terms for the creation of an inward microcosm of rest and authority. If the work of Milton’s left hand is best read as Milton’s attempt at actualizing its pervasive domestic, ecclesiological and political ramifications, failure to see it reflected in his temporal community would alert the poet to the need for man to individually appropriate it, mindful that only the man who was inwardly free would be able to change his world.
