Abstract (Summary)

Backpacking Through My Suburban Barrio: Eco-Latina Diaries is a collection of poems and critical reflection written during my Master of Fine Arts for Creative Writing at California State University, Long Beach. The front matter examines the ways in which my poems dismantle socio-economic boundaries in order to reveal depictions of femininity, community, nature, and empowerment. The primary focus of this work rests upon the development and creation of these poems. Poems that offer renditions of suburban, urban, and natural landscapes in various ways that subvert and expose the fragility of boundaries—constantly urging the speaker and reader towards possible transcendental moments where freedom and universal unity are possible.
