This thesis project is twofold in nature, both analytical and creative. The introduction takes a penetrating look at the concept of confessional poetry, and as such, the effect that personal experience and feelings have on crafting poetry. The project defines this type of lyric poetry as the “revealing of personal and emotional experience within the space of language.” The concluding sections incorporate original poetry centered on the female characters of both the Old and New Testament. The use of first and third person voice, as well as the juxtaposition of biblical characters with contemporary feminists and issues, is employed as a tool in creating the original work.
