Singing The Song Of The Eunuch, Andy Sanderson Apr 2007

Singing The Song Of The Eunuch, Andy Sanderson

English Master’s Theses

Form, stated as a critical component of poetry writing in “alchemic” combination with image, word choice, and resonance, as they bear on the creative writing process, is explored in this critical and creative thesis project. The poetic voice as it is informed by "Sanderson's Four Axioms,” (named above – form, image, word choice, resonance) are revealed through examples of published poets, critical suggestions, and original poetry.

Gaurav's Troubles, Geoffrey Kain

Publications

“Gaurav’s troubles began when he was very young, actually before he had learned to walk. While removing a pot of hot oil from the stove, his mother had stumbled, sloshing some of the oil over the edge of the pot and splashing little Gaurav on his lower left leg and foot, and across the back of his left hand and arm…”

"Hunters" deals with the unconscious motivations that leave a father resentful and unable to forge a relationship with his son. In "Bardenbrook," an accidental death is ...
