literature


I enjoy writing, but I mostly write on subjects that other people assign to me, and not things I think up myself. So here are some of the things I have been assigned to write, and I hope to add some things of my own inspiration, too.

Enjoy reading! If you have any comments or suggestions, I'd love to hear from you.

- April


Faith_and_Reason.pdf

A paper written for an ethics class.


Jonah_chapter_1.pdf

This is my very first effort at Bible translating. It is the first chapter of Jonah, translated from the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia. I hope to complete the book someday...perhaps while I'm here in Germany?


Linguistics_Paper.pdf

An expedition into the etymology of the English language.


World-view_sonnets.pdf

Nine sonnets which more or less comprise my world view.


Die_Brueder_Grimm_und_Marburg.pdf

The Brothers Grimm only spent about three years in Marburg, yet Marburg is very proud of that time. To discover the reason, though, you'd better know some Deutsch.


Die_heilige_Elisabeth.pdf

The Holy Elisabeth is a rather important figure in the history of Marburg.


Die_Nazizeit_in_Marburg.pdf

Marburg was one of the first cities to strongly support the Nazis.


Die_Regierung_der_Bundesrepublik_Deutschland.pdf

A summary of the workings of the German government.


Philipp_der_Grossmutige.pdf

Philipp, a patron of Marburg and the University.


Religion_and_Nihilism.pdf

Final paper written for my Sociology of Religion class. Discusses various definitions of religion and what it means to be "unreligious".
