Dissertation Haiku

Who knows what he meant
When Bartleby said he would
Prefer not to? You?

---Robert Blair, University of Hawaii
Dissertation Title: The Doctrine of Assumptions: Narrator Bias in Melville's "Bartleby, the Scrivener"

Haunted by your dissertation, past, present or future?

Or maybe still reveling in the glory of your long-ago diss?

Why not exorcise those demons or relive the triumph by writing a Dissertation Haiku?

Check out more examples here.

Remember, "Dissertations are long and boring. By contrast, everybody likes haiku."
