Transcript Friday, 2 - >:30 p.m. several significant androgynous figures represent a harmonious integration of polar oppositions. The Castle is the mirror of K.'s misdirected search for transcendence; in his obsessive pursuit of the Castle, K. overlooks the paradisiacal state hidden but immanent in the world he inhabits — the fertile union of sky and earth, reason and intuition, the conscious and the unconscious. Joshua Berrett, Mercy College. "The Edenic Vision in The Creation of Franz Joseph Haydn." The Creation (1799) of Franz Joseph Haydn (1732- 1809) has long been recognized as one of the supreme masterpieces in the oratorio literature. The vision of Eden which Haydn presents can be seen from three points of view: 1) Haydn's lifelong delight in the simple joys and wonders of creation — generally taken to be a natural outcome of his peasant upbringing; 2) Haydn's being inspired by The Book of Genesis and Milton's Paradise Lost, both of which serve as his primary textual sources; and 3) The realization of Haydn's musical ideas in The Creation. SHE'S A GREAT LITTLE SCIENTIST Room 116 Chair: Vincent Miranda, Science Museum, West Palm Beach, FL. Vincent Miranda, Science Museum. Film Narration. Catherine McClenahan, Marquette University. Response. Gary K. Wolfe, Roosevelt University. Response. WILLIAM MORRIS Room 118 Chair: Richard Mathews, University of Tampa. Dennis Badaczewski, Northern Michigan University. "News From Nowhere: Fantasy as Revolution." News From Nowhere is often viewed as a pastoral romance describing a medieval future. Instead, it should be approached as a Utopian fantasy critical of capitalism and favorable toward Marxism. The novel was written, at least partly, in response to Bellamy's Looking Backward, a homage to the ultimate benefits of capitalism. Morris not only advocated the destruction of capitalism but fostered its destruction by violent means. The violent revolt in News From Nowhere is consistent with Morris' work both before and after the publication of the novel. John Hollow, Ohio University. ""Another story now my tongue must tell': Book XVII of William Morris' The Life and Death of Jason." In Morris' version if the Jason story, at the end of his life Jason fantasizes himself again doing great deeds, imagining against all facts of time and circumstance that his life renews itself, bringing him love and fame. But Book XVII should teach him instead that "there is an end to everything." It is not just his dreams of passionate desire which have an ending, for in all this world all beds are metaphorically if not actually "drip ping with blood and burning with fire" — all beds eventually become death beds. What matters finally is that the ancient patterns be affirmed, that the hero escape from the cycles of life and desire, and find rest. FRIDAY, 4-5 MARCH 2 5 3 0 P. H. 22 IMAGINARY SOCIETIES AS SOCIAL CRITICISM Room 100 Chair: O.M. Drekonja, St. John's University, Minnesota. Lawrence R. Broer, University of South Florida. "Negative Utopias: The Sad Paradise of San Lorenzo." Cat's Cradle, shows a world so devastated by forms of mechanistic insanity that only a cynical religion like "Bokononism" will serve to make existence tolerable. Bokonon offers a solution based upon "a bitter disapointment for which no remedy exists, unless laughter can be said to remedy anything." The challenge awaiting the narrator on San Lorenzo is to discover first of all that the moral advantages of lying about the truth and of surrendering to Bokononist fatalism are tragically mistaken. Then Jonah must develop the necessary will and courage to follow his conscience and act against the totalitarian machinery that threatens to engulf him. Peter W. Macky, Westminster College. "C.S. Lewis's Out of the Silent Planet as Social Criticism." There can be little doubt that one of C.S. Lewis's main purposes in writing Out of the Silent Planet was to offer implicit criticism of the Silent Planet by contrasting it with Malacandra. Thus it is fitting that the novel be approached by asking how it works as social criticism. Gordon Patterson, Florida Institute of Technology. "Science Fiction and Historical Consciousness: The Idea of History in the Work of Philip Dick." Readers are attracted to science fiction for many reasons. Rarely, however, are science fiction writers credited with deepening our historical consciousness. This paper demonstrates that science fiction plays a major role in influencing our epoch's sense of history. The paper analyzes the work of Philip Dick. Dick expresses a unique sense of history throughout his work. The paper concludes that Philip Dick succeeded in enhancing our sense of history while writing science fiction. THE EAOTAOTIC IN THE WORKS OF EDGAR ALLAN POE II Room 102 Chair: Richard Kbpley, Illinois State University. Nicholas Ruddick, University of Regina, Canada. "The Hoax of The Red Death: Poe as Allegorist" Poe was contemptuous of allegory, yet The Masque of the Red Death has been read as allegory by some
