Late Benedictions Thesis uri icon



  • Thesis (M.F.A., English) -- University of Idaho, 2015 | This book-length poetry project critiques and complicates the possibility for spiritual salvation for mental illness, and how it may not be possible. Because of strict religious foundations of the speaker, which also reinforce personal revelation and the extreme problems of how they interact with psychosis, my work interrogates how these delusions will continue without proper therapy. Using religious imagery, psychotherapy methods and models, my own biographical grief, and a representation of psychosis through a coyote, the work explores the possibilities through these obsessions in many poetic manners.
