Abstract:
The Millifold Bouquet is a collection of poetry separated into three sections. Each section was inspired by different sources, and each reflects a different craft focus. The first section, titled “wild strawberries,” was stylistically inspired by the poetry of Federico García Lorca. In “wild strawberries,” I focused on techniques of imagery and surrealism present in this poet’s work, to create poems centering on the entangled ideas of love, death, and nature. My second section, “isolations,” explored the relationship between dance and aloneness, and was driven more by theme than by image. My final section, “the life and death of ophelia,” was driven primarily by narrative. It arose out of a desire to update Shakespeare’s Ophelia for the modern era, adding depth and strangeness to her character.
