Within the Marrow is the culmination of an intense two-year learning period during which my overall awareness of language, and specifically poetry, has grown and matured. This is not to say I have arrived, but to suggest that the Master of Fine Arts program has changed me, and has changed my work. The scintillating environment provided many outlets for creative expression, as well as the study of an extensive and diverse curriculum.
The methodology considers the work of many poets, as well as the theory behind their work. The Appendices consist of two sections: "Bones" and "Amber Haze." The first grouping deals with description, physical and spiritual, the second with betrayal, death, and sustenance. Both sections mention the body in different ways, and much of the work presents a feminist perspective. The poems included cover a wide range of topics and are written in various styles, yet I feel they all carry variations of the same voice.
