Happy New Year to all! And may it be a blessed one!
I am writing to tell you that I've uploaded my thesis online, "Poetic Technique in Vikram Seth's The Golden Gate." In it, I review Seth's use of poetic technique to achieve effects in the work. Published in 1986, the book is a 'novel in sonnets.' I include a Synopsis in the Appendix for those who are interested in reviewing the story but who have not read it. The synopsis gives context to the sonnets I select for analytical examination in the body of the thesis.
Poetic analysis can be cruelly detailed - frankly, boring, especially to read. I tried to create a very enjoyable experience of it and hope I succeeded. I combine the use of traditional literary analytical techniques with consideration of a variety of contextual concerns.
I hope you like it! You will find the Abstract and Thesis links at my "English Services" page on this website.
