Thumb Twiddle Glossolalia: The Soumage
by Huff, Hannah Katherine, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 90; 1523270
Abstract (Summary)

Thumb Twiddle Glossolalia: The Soumage is a collection of poetry written during my two years in the Master of Fine Arts Creative Writing Program at California State University, Long Beach. While the structure and subject matter of these poems vary, the synaesthetic fusion of sound and imagery is at the core of them all. I define this sonic-sensual ideal as the soumage and examine its usage within a network of other poetic and thematic elements. The appendices are ordered to loosely trace a narrative about recognizing and appreciating the peculiar beauty of that which is overlooked by society, with the soumage bolstering this reverence.
