Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Limited Sight Distance
by Friedlander, Mark B., M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 69; 1527929
Abstract (Summary)

Limited Sight Distance is a poetry collection, written primarily between August 2012 and March 2014, while I was enrolled in the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program at California State University, Long Beach. In addition to work produced during this time, it also includes poems I completed while a returning undergraduate, as well as others written outside the academic environment; all are intended to reflect both my experience and development as a poet. The subject matter of these narratives includes aging, betrayal, death, family, illness, loss, love, and work, as perceived from varying points of view. I have found that, in life, it is when we are unable to see beyond that which presents itself to us immediately, that our sight distance is limited.
