Abstract

NIGHTWATCHER is a collection of poetry focused on various aspects of a person’s identity. The 13 included poems aim to communicate a sense of self through images of nature or place; in each poem, there is a clear presence of consciousness, a strong voice that is driving the poem, supported by the setting or the presence of a natural element. Essentially, the poems portray the inner life of a person and its connection to the outside world. By capturing the struggles a person can encounter in their life, various traumas, dreams, longing, love, heartbreak, or simply the deep connection between a human and nature, the poems are an artistic study of the complexity of human consciousness.

THE CRITICAL ESSAY ‘Ezra Pound: a Scholar and Teacher, the Knowledge in The Pisan Cantos, and Pound’s Expectations from the Reader’ discusses Ezra Pound’s interest in education and teaching, and the connection between his academic history and the purpose of his poetry, namely The Pisan Cantos. Pound’s experimentation with form, languages, and overall content in poetry has been a substantial inspiration to me while working on the poems in this collection, especially on the poem A Closed Circle. I also decided to focus on Pound because, like Pound himself, I consider broad knowledge and learning to be a very important foundation for writing poetry and literature.
