This thesis represents a journey of interlocked explorations on experimental themes that are rooted within the spirit of empathy on the basis of moments of the everyday. These universalities serve as my fulcrum as I make the pitch for The Poetry School of Experience. Also found within this thesis are thematic works coupled with a significant focus on craft as these relate to poetic techniques. I make the case through my own autobiographical approach as this relates to my being inspired by writers who share the view of poetry both as a vehicle for redemption and as a method for unification. It is also through my argument in favor of poetry being universal as well as through the introduction of original forms that I base my authorial intent as I state the critical controversies as these relate to my own writing practice and to the work of published writers. The literary criticism contained in my essays on The Poetry School of Experience as well as the poems found within my poetry manuscript Nomad oppose elitism and nepotism in the art of poetry by advocating through the poems of experience that are rooted within the elements of the human condition on the basis of addiction, war, loss, recovery, love, work, parenting, caretaking and fear that all people encounter either directly or indirectly.
