This creative enquiry consists of a collection of poems, called Broken Ground, and a commentary on the writing process. The central research question that the enquiry addresses is that of poetry as a 'via negativa': how can poetry tackle experiences such as death, the otherness of nature, desire and loss in a manner which acknowledges the liminal or numinous core of many such experiences?
