It's Different With Puppets

by McDermott, Lydia M.

Abstract (Summary)
This is a collection of poetry preceded by a critical introduction entitled, “Cleaving the Body to/from/in My Poems: A Critical Introduction.” The introduction explores the way in which I use the female body within my poems to validate a space for this body in literature. I compare and contrast my poems to the poems of Sharon Olds, Denise Duhamel, and Beth Ann Fennely, to name a few. The creative portion of the thesis deals with the subject of the female body in many arenas, but is not limited to this subject.
