Hannah McLain-Jesperson BFA Thesis Spring 2013
Biting The Sun is a 1977 science fiction novel by Tanith Lee that explores themes of purpose and identity through an unnamed narrator. My attempts to define the book mirrored the narrator’s attempts to define her life and so her struggle became mine. The artwork I created are seven illustrations based on characters, events and ideas in the novel. The paper I wrote is a meta-pastiche in which I narrate my struggle to find purpose just as the protagonist of the novel does.
