Abstract

DE FIDELIS is a collection of poems that examines domestic life and the ways that domestic life comes undone by the challenges of contemporary culture. The content of the poems is drawn from a wide range of personal experiences--a kind of travel in which the customs and ideology of "home" are explored and challenged, the home where domesticity is embedded with fidelity and the specter of infidelity, death, and the world that remains when the dead continue to engage with the living. What unites the poems are the close observations of relevant objects and memory.
