Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Less lonely: Intersections of the unintentionally objective
by Wallace, Toren M., M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 104; 10076458
Abstract (Summary)

Less Lonely: Intersections of the Unintentionally Objective is an assemblage of poems from 2012 to 2016 and an accompanying methodology. The poetry reflects a willingness to explore the liminal space between observation and emotion. The vehicle for this exploration is language. Language is the conduit by which the poet is able to bring together seemingly disparate images and moments of time through an unintentional objectivity of cognition. Although the poems vary in form and overall aesthetic, they are unified by a desire to connect with the reader. The essay that precedes the poetry is a statement of poetics that utilizes a personal narrative to examine the many influences on my work.
