super excited to (un)officially announce my thesis topic. the gist is this: w.c.w., walt whitman, hayden carruth, and the poetry of stroke. #poetry #thesis | follow #ThesisSunday for updates on my shenanigans.

Louise Former US Poet Laureate James Tate also had a stroke. Might be of interest. Best of luck writing your thesis! (edited) 5y
utterKATEness @Louise Yes! Actually that's incredibly helpful! (I've spent more time than I care to admit trying to dig up names.) Thank you so much!! 5y
