Abstract:
The Other City The poems in this collection chart a journey through several cities, some of which may well be imaginary. Touching upon themes of otherness, nationality and the process of growing old, they explore the poetry of the between space and the process of transformation brought about by contact with the creative process itself. Strange Cartographies This accompanying reflective thesis seeks to contextualise the collection and explore its creative genesis. The thesis explores the ways in which the creative process can be mapped with reference to notions of otherness, and asserts that the creative process can be viewed as a foreign space to which the poet is granted access via a process of selfmythologisation. With reference to my own creative process, I will explore how the language of undoing places the poet within the space of the poem, and how the I/you binary is subverted by the presence of this third, more elusive, element.
