Abstract:
Concepts of place combine to form and influence our understanding of ourselves and our locations in the world. My goal for this project is to explore the idea of place - relative, absolute, physical, psychological - in poetry. In these poems, place serves as catalyst for the metabolism of history, story and experience. This collection of poems operates through concrete description of and direct response to particular places, dialogue with the stories that these places hold, and creation of new poetic places from memory and experience. As a result, this collection of poems has evolved into an exploration of my personal lineage derived from literal and metaphoric interactions with place. This collection also presents my growth as a writer throughout its development, insofar as it includes the both the final sequence and rough drafts of each of the poems, prior to revision. These are in the back.
