Abstract

"A Tongue Set Free from Fashionable Lies"; a collection of lyric and narrative poems, explores human relationships with place, nature, and one another. The collection’s title states succinctly its aesthetic: to express plainly and accessibly the feelings and truths of experience, of a life lived and made meaningful. Each of the collection’s sections explores and celebrates the joys and sorrows of one aspect of human experience: the domestic world and its debts to nature, nature and its mortal dangers, the promise of Heaven. As a collection, the poems praise the contradictions and paradoxes of a life lived and loved in its entirety.
