"Whoever Heard of a Utah Poet?: An Overview of Poetry in the Early Church"
The awards committee felt that Larsen's essay "embodies the important
virtues of our discipline: solid scholarship, an excellent grasp of
subject matter, and the careful workings of a keen analytical mind."
"This critically perceptive survey of early Mormon poets makes an
important contribution to Mormon literary history and is especially
noteworthy as a model of undergraduate scholarship."
