Item Summary

Title:Brown Coats Cannot be Bought With Names
Authors:Fernandez, Kāʻai S.
Date Issued:15 Nov 2018
Abstract:My short story or fairy tale critically examines the name of a person and the use of titles, and how both can affect not only an individual’s identity, but also a community’s identity. The dangers of titles as they become so important to a
person that they consume them, the person becomes the title and their name becomes secondary, seemingly forgotten. In this story, this is illustrated by names representing the identity of the person; as names are traded for titles, people become unable to recognize each other as they see only the traits of titles and not the individual.
The author’s artist statement examines literary influences from his personal life and family, as well as the creative use of first-person narration.
