James, Erica (2006) The shapes of things. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
- Accepted Version
Looking at the ways that hope can be both self-sustaining and self-defeating, the stories in this collection focus on characters divided within relationships or situations over which they have no control. In each story, the character is challenged to choose between honouring her self (her perceptions, needs, desires) and honouring her need for safety and connection with others. That these are always antithetical positions forms the basis of tension and conflict in this work.
