Self -- Poetry
The imposed I. Inherited I. The pressured, defended I. The chosen and hidden I. The I that changes as its circumstances change. I that seems cousin or sister to other iterations of I. The I in its recognizable continuity, the I in its puzzling discontinuity. Is there an intrinsic I? That would have been in any circumstance, any moment in history, any culture? The poems in this thesis consider the I(s) that is(are) now and those curious moments when an I recognizes another--a might have been, or was but is no more, or a may be one day--I.
