Title: All in It Now: Stories
Author: Palmer, Walter Joseph
Department: School of English and Theatre Studies
Program: Creative Writing
Advisor: Bush, Catherine
Abstract: Story and mode of telling are both matters of artistic choice and should respond, one to the other. The arts offer many storytelling options regarding medium and form. The short story collection presents a signal opportunity to explore the relationship between story and narrative. Here, the narratives vary in point of view from a disengaged third person to a very present first person. Voice is sometimes intimate and embedded in the story or authorial and distant. Writing can be a conventional mix of expository and dialogue, or dialogue alone, relying on nothing but the voices of two characters to put across the entire thing—or monologue. Chronology is mutable. And in much the same way that such narrative choice varies, so too does story. Character and subject matter vary greatly throughout. It is this range of story and narrative types and how they operate that I have tried to explore.
