Abstract

Discussing this body of my own work is much more difficult than the actual creation and revision of the poems, for I am operating without two of criticism's most valuable tools: the objectivity that comes with time and the detachment of non-involvement. In short, discussing one's own work is like looking into a mirror. Since objectivity on my part is impossible, I will attempt to avoid judgements about my own work's value. Instead, I will explain the ideas that tie the poems in Round Trip together, and then, since these poems reflect the efforts of a young writer, discuss what I have learned about writing poetry through examining a number of poems individually.
