Abstract

This thesis explores the difficulties and fragilities of relationships between, in this case, men and women. It reflects on larger issues of alienation, identity, subjectivity, while at the same time referencing possibilities of life beyond death. It is structured by interchanging poem and prose sections, the latter in footnotes. The identities of the main characters, Angela and Dahl, are woven in the poem sections, and are seen to be unstable. Self-sacrifice, madness and blindness, with respect to issues of love, are classic references throughout.
