Abstract

This thesis is a collection of original poems. The poems found herein attempt to bridge a perceived gap between poet and audience by using clear, interesting language and relatable subject matters. The setting for many of these poems is New England, and travel between the American Northeast and the South is emphasized. The speakers in these poems often find themselves positioned between two contrasting worlds and attempt to negotiate between them. Consistent themes include travel, nature, generation, family, and growing up.
