This creative project has been an experiment in the writing of poetry based on a continuing study of the styles and techniques of established poets. The poet most frequently referred to in this project is W.B. Yeats, and his influence appears the most pervasively and consistently in the poems that comprise this project. Less frequently, these poems have also grown from the plot or them suggestions or character creations by Pope, Keats, Tennyson, Browning, Auden, Robinson, and Nash. Many poems area also derived from a study of various forms that poets have found useful in the writing of their poetry, such as the ballad and the Petrarchan sonnet.In addition, this project includes background, analysis, and explication of the twenty-four original poems included, thus attempting an objective critical commentary on the poetry.
