Abstract

This creative thesis is made up of twenty-three poems written in various styles, though most fall into two different categories, the short, sparse, Eigner-like poems or the long narrative poems. The poems demonstrate the theme of how women's sexuality fits into society and how that sexuality affects their lives. This creative thesis also demonstrates the author's ability to understand poetry and literature in general through the ability to create.
