Buffam, Suzanne (2003) Plenty. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
Plenty is a collection of poems rooted in the lyric tradition that modulate primarily between the registers of prayer and meditation, and employ formal strategies ranging from sonnets to accentual meter to free verse to prose. Among their various concerns, the poems explore questions of desire, subjectivity and absence, at the heart of which is the problem of how to inhabit the physical world, with its abundance and beauty, in a state of religious and philosophical impoverishment--and how, if possible, to accept this as enough . While the poems in this manuscript are thematically linked from a broad perspective, they represent, as whole, a diverse collection of voices and styles.
