This PhD capping paper is an accompaniment to three published books of poetry: Blood/Sugar, White Coins and Everything Broken Up Dances. Blood/Sugar and White Coins (hereafter B/S and WC) were both published by Arc Publications in the UK, in November 2009 and April 2015. Everything Broken Up Dances (EBUD) by Tupelo Press in the US, in December 2015. I situate these books within a poetics of desire, exploring the idea of the self in my work and how this relates to the self as other, or desiring of the other. I also consider the possibilities of fragmentation in relation to form and utterance. Significantly—though among others—I examine key texts by Georg Hegel, Judith Butler, Maurice Blanchot, Edmond Jabès and Jacques Lacan and examine their various theories on desire and the function of the self to evaluate poems from each of my own books, as discussed.
