1. Betts, Amanda. Rogue: A Novel - and - Wonderlust: the value of wonder for readers, writers, and The Vault: A critical essay.

Degree: 2018, Edith Cowan University

This thesis consists of an original novel, Rogue, and an exegesis titled Wonderlust: the value of wonder for readers, writers, and The Vault. Rogue is the second novel of the series titled The Vault, which is a speculative fiction duology for young adults (thirteen and above) with the possibility for crossover into adult readership. Rogue picks up the story of fifteen-year-old Hayley who, after choosing to leave her previous home of an underwater seed vault, finds herself washed onto the cliffs of Maria Island, off the coast of Tasmania. As Hayley ventures further into the terrestrial ‘real world’ of 2120, she must call on her wits, intelligence, and creativity to survive. Rogue is a story of new beginnings, discovery, belonging, relationships, choice, and responsibility. Wonderlust: the value of wonder for readers, writers, and The Vault, is an examination of wonder which investigates the role of wonder in literature and how it can be evoked without relying on overused tropes of science fiction. The exegesis first explores the experience of wonder and its importance to us individually and collectively, along with its relationship to philosophy, psychology, nature, and science. Secondly, it investigates wonder in literature, particularly in speculative fiction: its composition, appeal, reception and potential, on and beyond the page. It specifically examines how narrative elements have been successfully manipulated to facilitate wonder in creating an original two-book series of speculative fiction for young adults titled The Vault. Thirdly, it discusses the role of wonder for the writer, both as initial impulse for creativity and as an experience during the writing process. In this, reference is made to the writing of Rogue: a novel inspired and shaped by wonder. Ultimately, the thesis argues the value of wonder in fiction — particularly contemporary young adult fiction — and positions Rogue in this context as a work which reminds readers of the astonishments of this puzzling world, and their important place within it.

2. Garcia-Fernandez, Anton. Rogues in Dialogue: The Literature of Roguery in Spain and England in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries.

Degree: PhD, Spanish, 2011, Vanderbilt University

After the groundbreaking invention of the printing press, which led to the creation of a burgeoning literary market, the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries saw an exceptional increase in the production of literature about criminals and the underworld across Europe. This was particularly intense in the cases of England, with the appearance of popular genres such as the jest-book and the rogue pamphlet, and Spain, where picaresque literature, a genre that is instrumental to the study of the history of the novel, first came to fruition. This dissertation explores the intertextual dialogue in which English and Spanish authors of rogue texts engaged in the early modern period. The study attempts to integrate the English and Spanish traditions under the all-inclusive umbrella term of ârogue literature,â which will facilitate a more comprehensive understanding of two traditions that would prove highly influential even into the present day. In all the texts considered here, the authors create diverse and often antithetical images of the literary figure of the rogue that are decisively influenced by considerations such as each authorâs ideology, literary conception, and political agenda. Moreover, this study analyzes the different ways in which Spanish writers of rogue literature introduced elements akin to those found in English rogue pamphlets into their works, reworking and modifying them in order to suit their own purposes. By taking two disparate Spanish picaresque textsâMiguel de Cervantesâs exemplary novella Rinconete y Cortadillo (1613) and Dr. Carlos Garcíaâs lesser-known La desordenada codicia de los bienes ajenos (1619)âas cases in point, the dissertation integrates two literary traditions that can be more thoroughly understood when viewed in the light of one another. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Edward H. Friedman (chair), Dr. Cathy L. Jrade (committee member), Dr. Andres Zamora Juarez (committee member), Dr. Mark L. Schoenfield (committee member).

3. DesRoches, Nicolas N. Poets on the Hill: A Contemporary Exploration of Canadian Political Poetry in English.

Degree: MA, 2013, McMaster University

In this thesis, I investigate Canadian poetry that is explicitly about the political (politicians, political parties, or political policies) written in English. I begin by defining political poetry and its aims in Canada and then progress through an examination of three collections of poetry and one poem: The Blasted Pine; Howl Too, Eh?; and Rogue Stimulus. This allows for a comprehensive look at how political poetry has evolved in Canada from a pointed and critical genre that aims to mock and argue to a more subtle, playful genre that utilizes parody and wit. It also demonstrates the evolution and complication of voice in political poetry, given that each poem contains the voice of the poet, the speaker, the public, and the political. I argue that political poetry in Canada is not poetry as dissent, protest, or witness, but rather poetry as inquiry/commission (in the political sense). This definition relies on the fact that Canadian political poetry seeks to ascribe accountability for political actions and decisions and utilizes the poet as spokesperson, speaking for the public to the political (and the public in turn). Canadian political poetry hence arises out of a demand from the public, much like political inquiries do, and through the satirical use of politically correct language and explicit political references calls for action from the political sphere and the public. I further argue that poetry as inquiry also comments on the public itself (including the author/speaker as a member of that public) and that political poetry is transideological.
