Abstract

Humunculus is a collection of 50 poems written from 2010 to 2015. Written in free verse, Humunculus features poems containing saints and mythical creatures, American and European cities like Burlington, New York, Prague, and Venice, encompassing thousands of years of culture and religion. Humunculus explores mythology in daily life through the guise of traditional mythological entities like St. Mark and The Golem and through cultural rites of passage. I’m seeking to unearth the lineage of man to myth, writing about new and old myths.
