Abstract

The Young Ones Have Such Big Eyes is a collection of creative, critical, and auto-theoretical essays centered loosely around Hartford, Connecticut. By exploring topics such as Eastern European immigration, Wallace Stevens's poetry, abandoned cemeteries, Arizona's landscape, Jewish naming traditions, and queer theory, this collection addresses the idea of "place" as both material and imagined and interrogates the ways in which language influences the transmission of memory.
