Abstract: "Lolita the Immortal: Nabokov, Kubrick, and Lyne's Nymphet" is an analysis of Vladimir Nabokov's controversial novel, Stanley Kubrick and Adrian Lyne's films, and at times a look at the screenplay of each film. The purpose is to compare and contrast each film with the novel, examining what each film offers the audience, and how well the films adhere to the novel. "Luray's Pearls: A Woman's Life, Struggle, and Wisdom in North Carolina, 1921-2008" is a biographical essay using feminist rhetoric in a segmented essay style. The use of narrative presents a more intimate picture of the subject and aims to involve the reader. I obtained information about the subject through personal interviews and research into the Great Depression and women, and education in North Carolina.
