"Violence commands both literature and life, and violence is often crude and distorted."
– Ellen Glasgow

Violence is an ever-present phenomenon in literary texts. From Homer's graphic descriptions of infantry combat in the Iliad, to Wilfred Owen's haunting portrayal of the war-torn fields of Europe, to Edith Wharton's subtle critique of Old New York as a place of ruthless social warfare, representations of violence powerfully call our attention to questions of authority, agency and power.

"'The Plains' as a Unique Place in Literature"; MAASA Conference; Tulsa, OK; April 1-3, 2012

Friday, December 2, 2011 - 12:31pm
Brian Brooks / Northeastern State University, Broken Arrow

Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize-winning play August: Osage County depicts an Oklahoma family dealing with the hardships of death, discord, substance abuse, and other problems while confined by "the Plains." Letts sets the play in a claustrophobic space, a house with the windows covered, to make a statement about life on the plains. His study about family requires the audience to evaluate whether or not the Plains is a distinct place, or if the concerns are of larger import.
