The following thesis is an autobiographical account of my progress and growth as a poet, chronicling specific changes in my work after encountering the idea of "Duende," as explored by Federico Garcia Lorca. The included Appendix displays this evolution of my work during the course of my graduate program. The combined objective is to show not only how Duende affected my poetics, but how each artist has her own version of Duende found only within the self. As the artist struggles, Duende rises seeping into the bruises of the battle. It cannot be sought and does not linger as the muse may, taunting the artist; instead it matures within the battle until Duende and artist meet.
