Abstract

This creative thesis is concerned with the exploration of the stages of grief. 'Stolen Souls' utilizes the popular speculative fantasy genre, mixing fantasy monsters with reality to allow the main character a safe way to deal with the grief she faces in her life. 'Stole Souls' borrows Elizabeth Kubler-Ross's theories of denial and acceptance while at the same time drawing from the various models of the fantasy genre.
