Abstract

Patterson, Kaitlyn Sage. MFA. The University of Memphis. May, 2012. Twining. Major Professor: John Bensko, Ph.D. Twining is a collection of poetry that focuses on a theme of isolation and the dangers presented by interactions with the natural world as well as the people and animals inhabiting it. The work explores a childhood split between an ashram in India and a middle school in East Tennessee, the universality of seeking comfort in religion, sex, and companionship in a variety of forms. The work primarily employs free-verse structures.
