Abstract

godspeople is a creative thesis focusing on the relationship between humanity and divinity. In three sections of poetry, the work explores the idea of sacrifice as it relates to the human conception of the divine (“gods and people”), presents a portrait of a godless, and therefore hopeless, society (“godspeople”), and explores the search for meaning in individual lives (“people of god”).

Subject(s)

Humanity - Religious aspects - Poetry.
