Abstract

Parallel Courses is a creative work consisting of poetry and personal essays. The writing examines the ontology of the self, discovering and explaining the reality of the self through time and change. The major themes explored include how past experiences enhance and inhibit present relationships, both with the self and with others, and the struggle for identity in both the singular and plural sense within our relationships and lives. The writing searches to find a balance between the ties to one's history and the desires of one's present.
