Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Bodies at Rest, Bodies in Motion
by Yungkans, Jonathan, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2019, 118; 13858967
Abstract (Summary)

Bodies at Rest, Bodies in Motion is a three-part poetry collection written, edited and compiled during my studies in the Master of Fine Arts program at California State University, Long Beach. This collection illustrates my use of creative writing to cope with the effects of bipolar disorder. It is preceded by an extended prose methodology that explains the influence of four poets upon my work—Robert Duncan, William Carlos Williams, Gail Wronsky and Adrienne Rich—and balances autobiographical particulars with a discussion of general aesthetic principles.
