The following dissertation consists of a poetry manuscript and a personal essay that critically contextualizes the work. The collection of poetry “Hide” is an attempt to descend into the murmuring countries of the dead. As the word itself suggests, we see the hide of animals, the skin removed, tanned, toughened, to stretch over a hollow cylinder to make a drum, to drum the dead awake. We also hear the hide of concealment, what is hidden under the shirt. We hide and seek, run and hide. One for survival, another for play. The accompanying afterword explores the poetics of intimation in works that have influenced the poems.
