502    Thesis (M.F.A.)--University of Maryland, College Park, 
520    This collection represents an enduring fascination with 
       how language connects sense and perception, whether it be 
       a response to a work of art or an attempt to describe the 
       condition of vertigo. Through lyric and narrative under 
       lyric pressure, these poems explore different ways of 
       making experience manifest by invoking memory, both 
       personal and cultural. In some poems, memory transforms 
       experience or vice versa, whereas others attempt to 
       reconcile experience and memory and what may have been 
       lost and gained over time. In addition, German language 
       and literature are a constant touchstone. The translations
       included in the middle section reflect an interest in 
       literary translation as its own creative project as well 
       as its influence
