Jorie Graham's "The Guardian Angel of the Little Utopia": The truth of mystery and "Moonbeams in Quota"

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The dissertation includes a critical essay on Jorie Graham's The Guardian Angel of The Little Utopia and a full length collection of poetry entitled Moonlight in Quota. The essay is a critical examination which argues that Graham's poems question Western anthropocentric thought through her constant arrangement of particular images (flowers, yellow sky, leaves) and her subsequent questioning of such intellectual and linguistic arrangements. Graham grapples with ideas of perception, questions the historical concepts of truth and knowledge, and engages in linguistic play both musically and imagistically.
