Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Chalk Talk
by McCafferty, Brent, M.F.A., University of Maryland, College Park, 2009, 46; 1465546
Abstract (Summary)

The thesis's title section moves among Montana cities (Havre, Polson, Missoula), animals (grouse), drugs (meth), and yacht spots (Whitefish River). Through the voices of an anhedonic son and his parents I try, as George Oppen puts it in “Myth of the Blaze,” “to know//what I have said to myself.”
