dc.description.abstract This thesis is a poetry collection structured like a field guide to edible wild plants of the author’s backyard, growing up in rural Maine. Included here are poems written and named after plants the author has eaten or had some sort of sensory experience with on that land. These plants are a leitmotif for the reader to hold on to, as they are guided through the author’s childhood and teenage trauma, as well as a few adventures. This is used as a way to tap back into emotions and physical sensations surrounding the plant, which is often paired with an influential event in the author’s life. The events are in chronological order up until today, to create a memoiristic approach to both the poetry collection and field guide aspects of this work. en_US
