The focus of this creative thesis is to experiment with the nuances of literary innocence. More specifically, this thesis looks at instances of an actor projecting innocence on an object, and the inevitable confrontation that the relationship between them demands. Through the medium of four unique short stories and an accompanying epilogue, innocence objectified is examined in how it affects both the object and the individual who objectifies.
