Abstract/Description

This poetry research project follows the black plague as it travels through Europe, in the 1300’s. It includes fictional narrations, plague mythology, scientific research, and poetic illustrations of what the black plague wrought on Europe and its people. The collection of poems includes: short narratives, abecedarians, found forms, etc. In this presentation I will be discussing the overall effect that the black plague had on Europe, and how I went about finding and incorporating that research into a poetic conduit. I will also discuss the reasoning for the poems format, and how you go about choosing the way in which you want to format the information into poetry (structure, style, figurative language, etc.)
