I am currently writing a creative and critical thesis that explores absence, erasure, poetic space and liminality via contemporary female elegy. My research examines notions of feminine elegiac space; translation; slippage and struggle in language; the articulation of silence; liminal poetic spaces; breakage and fragment; and paradoxes of intimacy and distance.
Title of thesis
A Poetics of Absence
