When the night hour stalks about the steeple that is when it's fine to look.

Dubey, Myrrah 28 June 2013 (has links)
This is a manuscript comprised of two yearsÕ reflection, in an advanced setting, on the roles of poetry and gender today, as might be expressed through old or ancient forms and tropes, as well as more contemporary poetic approaches. No specific narrative is established, but themes are iterated, and reiterated, in multiple settings with the intention of permitting the reader freedom in his or her interpretation. This intention has its place in the wilfulness of the Poet to explain the self, as it is experienced, how it is idealised, and how it may actually be in a controlled environment.

Mousike

Moorhead, Robin 01 December 2013 (has links)
Music Etymology: Middle English musik, from Anglo-French musike, from Latin musica, from Greek Mousikê, any art presided over by the Muses, especially music. This collection is a celebration of imagination, music, and everyday experience. It is a constant quest for new and different. It tackles the simplest of moments, Tai Chi on the Porch, with the most complex, Death-Sitting, it pulls from the abstract, The Secret Lives of Requiems, and the concrete, Driving Past Orange Groves on My Way to Work. Influences on this collection are W.S. Merwin, for his imagination and foundness of language, Philip Levine, because of his external vision and voice, and Kim Addonizio, who s awareness of music is a content presence in her poetry. Mousikê seeks to capture the music of all moments and translate them into language that is ripe with vibrant sound, imagery, and voice. An eclectic collection, the body of work unifies itself around how sound helps to define experience. Each poem is its own endeavor, its own voice, its own entity, and while the separate poems each stress their own individuality, Mousikê unites them to create a varied mix of work in which Moorhead constantly explores herself as a poet. / M.F.A. / Department of English / Arts and Humanities / Creative Writing MFA

FRACTURES

Hastings, Elizabeth 01 April 2008 (has links)
A stoplight at night. A dim bedroom. The smell of smoke and loss in summer. In winter, the crackle of snow underfoot, the city cold as a lavender planet. These are the settings within Fractures, and it is to these backdrops that the conflicts of the poems' speakers bare themselves. In the glow of these places, the truth of fractures, the gaps and slivers within us all, are illuminated. Below the visible wholeness of life lies a masked truth, the truth of a world that exists as a collection of fragments, of lives, of stories that connect, intersect, and sometimes overlap to create the tapestry of life as we know it. Each of us, in our own way, is fractured: in our minds, bodies, families, or relationships. And yet we live with these breakages, embrace them, even, because these splinters--personalities, moments, obstacles--are what make us whole. Fractures is a collection of poems that examines these pieces that characterize human life. The events and speakers in this manuscript are fictional, yet, like all fiction, they reflect some remnants of reality, some recognizable truths of ourselves stitched throughout. Each section of the collection can be viewed as a separate fracture, and each poem may also be a fracture. Some poems are broken even further: within stanzas, within lines, sometimes within the mind of the speaker. The poems do not tell a linear story, but rather tell bits of stories that often overlap. These narrative gaps too are indicative of a fracture as they mirror the disconnect, both physical and emotional, that frequently occurs in the stories of one's life. The sections of Fractures address different topics, ranging from loss to love to self destruction. The speakers are linked by a sense of searching, a self-awareness of being splintered, and, as one poem states, of recognizing a "hunger" for something more. One has lost a dear friend; another destroys her body in a quest for beauty. Some reflect on their families. Others mourn for lovers past, while one clings to a fleeting moment of love in its perfection. Just as the body suffers its broken bones that heal with time, so too these speakers suffer rifts that mend but are not forgotten. In this way, Fractures is a dissection, an X-ray of its speakers, each break a lit scar, fluorescent on the page. / M.F.A. / Department of English / Arts and Humanities / Creative Writing MFA
