Description

My project is a collection of short fiction that examines how decisions have consequences in other lives, other stories, and how cycles of violence are created and perpetuated. The short story cycle includes stories I have already written at Illinois Wesleyan and four new stories. It includes an accompanying analysis that looks at how my work compares to other interconnected story universes, such as those created by James Joyce, Sherwood Anderson, Jennifer Egan, and H.P. Lovecraft. Additionally, I analyze the themes created in my work and defend how they can only come about through the short story cycle form in which I chose to work. This project gives me the opportunity to create a significant, meaningful body of work and consider its greater themes and place in the literary world.
