Abstract

A sequence of poems, mostly in a phonetically rendered Eastern New England accent, follows the exploits and thoughts of a young man from central Massachusetts, as well as a cast of secondary characters. This is followed by an essay that examines the sequence's salient aspects of language, voice, place, and mythology, and attempts to situate each in a context of forbears and influences.
