Dogmeat: New American Folktales is a collection of creative non-fiction pieces and fictive short stories that focus on the social issues of perception, duality, and the human desire to feel belonging. Although each piece may stand alone as a separate work, the collection is meant to better function as a whole. In other words, the pieces in this collection are meant to "speak" to each other and in doing so, provide a truer vision of what these stories endeavor to express. Thus, the arrangement of this collection is more than deliberate. It is an intentional attempt to enhance the overall atmosphere in which the stories evolve for the reader. Stylistically, the pieces in this collection are created with a variety of voices, diction, narrations, and other elements of the craft of fiction. The variety used is meant to bring focus, not disorientation, to the thematic elements presented in this work.
