You Saw You See: Wrestling With And Learning To Trust God Through 1st And 2nd Samuel A Collection Of Poems, Paul Stack Jun 2013

You Saw You See: Wrestling With And Learning To Trust God Through 1st And 2nd Samuel A Collection Of Poems, Paul Stack

Honors Theses

This collection of poems reflects my engagement with the stories and themes in 1st and 2nd Samuel, including forgiveness, God’s will and promises, sin, relationship between man and God, and transformation (I also respond to Psalm 51, in which David responds to events in 2nd Samuel). My engagement involves reinterpretation of Biblical passages, connections to modern contexts and personal stories, and getting inside the stories and moments of Biblical characters such as Samuel, Hannah, Saul and David. Other modern poets doing similar work, like Mark Jarman and John Berryman, explore similar themes but do not focus on 1st and ...

Other: Poems, Catherine Pritchard Childress

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This creative thesis is a collection of original poems entitled Other. The poems in Other reflect my study of the aesthetics of poetry as well as that of how women are represented as poets and as the subject of poems.

The critical introduction situates my poems within the framework of the poetic mode Personal Classicism—poetry that ...

Dangerous Instincts, Kirsten Holt Jan 2013

Dangerous Instincts, Kirsten Holt

Electronic Theses and Dissertations, 2004-2019

Dangerous Instincts is a collection of poems unified thematically by recurring and interstitial questions of the wilderness, the natural sciences - particularly astrophysics - the occult, and the mythic universe. These poems explore the mystical implications of the natural world and its meaning in the aesthetic consciousness, particularly in a highly secular century. Implied is the poet’s selfdiscovery and search for the divine. The collection emerges, not simply as interpretation, but a means of coming to terms with the fear of and compulsion to question the universe, and through those questions find illumination in the ordinariness of lived life and in ...
