    • Asylum song

    • American poetry--21st century.
    • In an interview, Sharon Olds said poems are "instructions on how to put the world back together." The poet's responsibility is to provide him or herself with instructions on how to piece their world back together through the truths and fictions...
    • So far

    • Poetry -- 21st century. ;
    • An Honors Thesis Presented to the English Department of Loyola University New Orleans in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirement for the Degree of Bachelor of Arts with Honors in English.
    • Furthest, shocking star

    • American poetry--21st century.
    • When I finished college in 2005, I didn't have any definite plans. I waffled as I've done most of my life through a variety of jobs. I even moved back to my home state of Mississippi, briefly, and taught high school for a year. Eventually, I found...
    • Vespers

    • Poetry -- 21st century. ;
    • An Honors Thesis Presented to the English Department of Loyola University New Orleans in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirement for the Degree of Bachelor of Arts with Honors in English.
    • How the body speaks

    • Short stories, American--21st century.
    • In the process of writing and revising this manuscript, certain recurring preoccupations came to light. I realized that my stories often deal with the human body— how people use their bodies, how their bodies can betray them, and what happens...
    • When fish take to walking

    • Short stories, American--21st century.
    • When Fish Take to Walking is a version of a similar line in the story "Hairless." I chose it for the title of this thesis for a couple reasons. 1, 1 simply liked the way it sounds. Good writing — like good music — is pleasant to the ear (Though,...
    • All of the following is true

    • American poetry--21st century.
    • If there's one thing I feel certain of regarding poetry, it's that the same few lines can inspire contradictory feelings in different people, or to the same person on different days. As far as this collection of poems goes, they represent a...
    • What carries on

    • Short stories, American--21st century.
    • You can do anything in fiction if you do it right. Like John Gardner says: "Most supposed aesthetic absolutes prove relative under pressure." This is the beauty of the beast: the limitless nature of the art. The rest is simply the beast itself:...
    • Other recent acts of violence

    • Short stories, American--21st century.
    • In naming this collection Other Recent Acts of Violence, I fear I have made a promise I cannot keep. After three years, I still cannot define "Fiction." However, I have come to some conclusions as to what fiction should do. Fiction should entertain...
    • A Blackberry rearing

    • American poetry--21st century.
    • Several years ago at a poetry reading, I heard a poet described as "a diddler of words." I can think of nothing better for which to strive, nothing better than to possess some mastery over these slippery beasts, for words are feral and not easily...
    • The Church in the plains

    • American poetry--21st century.
    • Good poetry cannot exist in a geographical or cultural vacuum. In her essay "The Fiction Writer and His Country" Flannery O'Connor makes the following claim: To know oneself is to know one's region. It is to also to know the world, and it is also,...
    • Eternity, Ohio

    • American poetry--21st century.
    • There is not much that I believe of poetry that I am certain I will believe tomorrow—I would be a fool to claim much else. As a whole, this thesis is a product of misconception and miscues. Maybe that is what I most believe of poetry—that it's...
    • Cavern dives

    • American poetry--21st century.
    • The poems presented in Cavern Dives derive from various interests I've had in the past and present. The poems in the section "Placing Charon's Obol" revolve around the act of mourning. Whether it be a formal prayer, a burial rite, or a simple...
    • I only say it because it's true

    • Short stories, American--21st century.
    • Belief is at the core of the stories comprising I Only Say It Because It's True. These pieces do not comment on particular beliefs so much as why people believe and why it is important that they do. The stories pit different beliefs against one...
    • The Anti-gravity contraptions

    • American poetry--21st century.
    • I do not consider many of the poems in The Anti-Gravity Contraptions to be successful ones or even finished ones, but they do symbolize the work that I have put into creating and studying poetry during my time in the MFA program at McNeese, which I...
    • Blame boys

    • Short stories, American--21st century.
    • The stories in this collection vary quite a bit in style--some are earnest, others are lighthearted, and many are somewhere in between. Yet, all of these stories deal with the theme of outsiders reaching out for affection. The central characters in...
    • The Marriage of Bacchus

    • American poetry--21st century.
    • Writing poems—and indeed writing creatively in general—must seem to many a foolhardy pretension, one which only the most effete and unserious kind of person would undertake with any kind of sincerity. Perhaps they are right, and indeed I think they...
    • Half step from holy

    • Short stories, American--21st century.
    • The moment I became aware of the artificial categories we create to describe art, I distrusted them. Is it not possible for a novel to also be a poem, a science fiction story to also be literary, or a horror story to also be a sentimental romance?...
