Abstract

This thesis contains one short story and one novella. Both are set in a historical setting and contain themes of loyalty, duty, morality, and spirituality. What connects them is a common setting and similar conflicts, both internal and external, as well as the protagonist of the novella’s involvement with the conclusion of the short story. In my introduction, I show how three authors use setting to help portray three novels and one short story that are set in historical time periods and cultures. I then explain how I’ve adopted certain techniques to aid me with the creation of historical and cultural settings in my own works.
