Notes

Abstract: This poster describes the author's creative thesis, consisting of two parts: a critical preface and a chapbook of original poetry. The critical preface to this creative project will examine the phenomenon of the project book in poetry by examining the range of types of poetry books. For the pure project book, the preface will examine Atsuro Riley's 'Romey's Order'. For the opposite end of the spectrum, the preface will discuss Robert Hass' 'Praise,' a book that could be termed a collection of poems with obsessions. The preface will also look at Claudia Emerson's 'Late Wife' and Sylvia Plath's 'Ariel and Other Poems' to fill out the spectrum. How closely do the poems in a book of poetry have to be bound up in a theme, including narrative and poetic voice, in order to justify putting the poems in a book? Poets seem to be writing more and more to put together a project book, or, to put in another way, a concept book. Is it enough that the poems were written by the same poet in around the same time, or does the reader need more? The creative section of this thesis will experiment with the ideas discussed in the critical preface by involving poems that have disparate speakers and subjects but interacting themes.
