Abstract

My thesis, Socks with Holes, is a poetry sequence containing seventeen free-verse poems. The poems focus on the main character, Evan, as well as several of his family members and friends. Evan is a flawed man with many problems, and the poetry sequence focuses on the other characters’ perceptions of Evan and his problems. Some of the important concepts that influenced this sequence are dramatic monologues, Cubism, and the importance of voice.
