Abstract

Poem, Swim is a collection of my poems written during the past year while I was living in Spain. They encompass my experiences in a foreign culture as well as bringing together all that I have learned about in poetry in the classroom. Influenced by certain poets like Charles Olsen and Robert Creeley, this manuscript is my attempt at writing a publishable book of poetry. A cohesive flow is maintained throughout the manuscript with reoccurring images such as sunshine, water, women and the longing for all of these things, and my attempts at breaking open the construction of the poem, this done by exposing the mechanics of the thought process and writing process.
