Muer, Peter, "Thesis Proposal and Manuscript" (2023). Masters Theses. 1027.
The aim of this thesis paper is to illustrate a key topic in the study of fictional literature within the context of envisioning, researching, planning, and writing a literary paper and fictional literary novel. In this, a thesis will be argued that literary themes are the most important literary element in fiction works (poems, stories, plays, novellas, novels…) and will be a core part of the serious manuscript (fictional novel; The Mulberry Tree) written by this writer (Peter Muer). In addition, a sound view of great writers and great literature will be presented, as well as a look at literary criticism, ideas, theory, and interpretation. A final conclusion will set out the plans for the upcoming novel which will seek to add to the Christian literary collection of great writings.
