The Intersection of Poetry and Human Sexuality [.pdf]

This thesis discusses the intersection of contemporary poetry with homosexuality specifically in the aspects of human sexuality and social commentary. The thesis features my original work as well as poems by other contemporary gay and lesbian poets. Sexuality is an abstraction, and poetry is a vessel for the discovery of a truth within the context of desire. My thesis strives to enlighten the rhetoric and poetics in the gay and lesbian community.
