This dissertation consists of a series of lyric poems preceded by an introduction to those poems. The introduction gives a background to the method of composition and historical precedents to the poems, connecting the lyric poems to the writing and thoughts of William Blake, Martin Heidegger, and Robert Creeley. The poems are presented in three parts, and cover a variety of subjects, frequently favoring the presentation of subjective experience over an imagined objectivity.
Blake; William; 1757-1827; Creeley; Robert; 1926-2005; Heidegger; Martin; 1889-1976; Lyric poetry; Poetry – History and criticism
