Abstract

This collection of poems uses surreal imagery and situations to realize the emotions and trials of everyday life. Mythological and grotesque characters reveal the obsessive and recurring mindsets in each of us. Written in four parts, each section displays a miniature of the entire work, which echoes the mythical archetypes that play out in individual experience.
