The ideal death, I think, is what was the ideal Victorian death, you know, with your grandchildren around you, a bit of sobbing. And you say goodbye to your loved ones, making certain that one of them has been left behind to look after the shop. – Terry Pratchett
THIS IS THE LANDING PAGE FOR MY THESIS.
This was one of the most intense and exciting things I have ever had the privilege to work on. I spent an entire academic year fully immersed in the Victorian period. For this thesis, I wrote both a full-length academic paper and a genre focused novel. For the purpose of this portfolio, you will be presented with a small section from each.
The AREA OF FOCUS for this creative piece is an excerpt from my thesis paper and the analysis that I did for the project. Although the analysis will discuss much more than just the section of the novel that is presented on this site, it gives an overall view of what it was like to write in the Steampunk and Neo-Victorian genres.
