Abstract or Description

This thesis discusses the intersection of contemporary poetry with homosexuality
specifically in the aspects of human sexuality and social commentary. The thesis features
my original work as well as poems by other contemporary gay and lesbian poets.
Sexuality is an abstraction, and poetry is a vessel for the discovery of a truth within the
context of desire. My thesis strives to enlighten the rhetoric and poetics in the gay and
lesbian community.
