Abstract

This Creative Writing thesis comprises two parts. Part one consists of two essays on questions that arose, and which I wished to explore, in relation to my poetry writing, and it concludes with a selection of my poems entitled Pillow Lava. The first essay considers reflections on the use of conventional form in critical writings and poetry of Thom Gunn and Michael Donaghy; the second explores the relationship between perception and the use of metaphor in poems by Craig Raine and Elizabeth Bishop. Part two consists of two essays relating to my translation of poetry by the German writer Sarah Kirsch, and concludes with my translations of poems by her entitled Ice Roses: Selected Poems by Sarah Kirsch. In the first essay, I introduce the life and work of the poet; in the second, I discuss my literary translations of some of her early poems through comparison with non-literary translations by others interested in Kirsch’s writing for political rather than aesthetic reasons.
