1. Bauman, Rebecca R. Squeeze.

Degree: M.F.A., Creative Writing - English, 2013, University of Florida

This thesis is a navigation of the poet’s desire to cling to idealism, desire to believe in the Great Meritocracy, desire to believe in all that is good and just,desire to believe that cruel and astonishingly stupid people are merely misunderstood and that we must look closer to understand the source of their outbursts, desire to believe that everything will turn out as it should. And, in turn, this thesis is a nod to the poet’s realization, as she ages and gains experience, that so many of those desires can and, without great care, will lead … not to skepticism—an attitude that seems like some form of compromise—but, instead, to cynicism, disgust, or despair. The poet is left asking: What now? How can I preserve that part of me that is hopeful and emotionally invested in the world, that is resilient? What can I do?
