A Gendered Collision: Sentimentalism and Modernism in Dorothy Parker's Poetry and Fiction

By Rhonda S. Pettit | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

As my interest in this subject began during my years as a graduate student, a number of individuals and institutions deserve recognition for their assistance, patience, and insights. I take this opportunity to thank the graduate faculty of the Department of English at the University of Kentucky, in particular Dr. Ellen Rosenman, my thesis advisor, and the poet James Baker Hall who, while not directly involved with this project, offered insights and lessons about literature that aided my work and that continue to teach me. I also thank the Reference and Interlibrary Loan staff of the M. I. King (now William T. Young) Library for helping me locate some of the (at that time) uncollected stories by Dorothy Parker. Several individuals at the University of Cincinnati provided valuable assistance as my work continued there. Dr. Alison Rieke, my dissertation director, as well as the members of my dissertation committee, Dr. Lisa Marie Hogeland and Dr. Beth Ash, provided much guidance for this project. The staff of the Interlibrary Loan Office of Langsam Library worked diligently to retrieve reviews of Parker's work as well as uncollected prose by Parker. I am grateful to the Langsam Library for their collection of the Vanity Fair issues dating back to the teens and twenties, and to the Cincinnati Public Library for their collection of the old Life magazine issues, also dating back to the twenties.

Two forms of financial support also aided this project. I was able to complete a large portion of this study while on a Taft Memorial Fund Dissertation Fellowship awarded by the University of Cincinnati. Also, a Travel-to-Collections Grant, provided by Tulsa Studies in Women's Literature (Holly Laird, editor), of the University of Tulsa, enabled me to examine manuscripts at the McFarlin Library and consider Parker's work from the point of view of a British writer (Stevie Smith) she influenced.
