Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A Wave of Navy Blue Churning
by Buckowski, Melanie, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 51; 1466192
Abstract (Summary)

The image, the cultivation of one's personal journey, and tapping the unconscious are elements of poetic creation. Forever married to the craft is the poet's obsession with words and language, and her/his unique view of the world. The act of poetry (and all artistic efforts) attempts to fuse divisions and create unity.

This thesis will explore: striving for truth and clarity in poetry, the essential nature of the image, and the benefits of individual experience in the poetic aesthetic; how, ultimately, the gesture of creation is a grasping for the divine.
