The purpose of this creative thesis was to explore, in a cacophony of lyric voices and registers, the constant struggle for personal expression in the face of mortality in its many forms. While many of the poems are written purely in free verse, many others are written using traditional forms, variations on traditional forms, and nonce forms, thus the thesis seeks to contemplate and celebrate its themes of mortality, family, cultural and personal myth, language, and abstraction through the use of its fluid, constantly improvised sonic techniques. The result was that the multifarious approach to lyric poetry is an accurate, memorable, and revelatory mode through which mortality can be confronted and celebrated.
