This thesis is a collection of poetry that examines masculinity and violence in the contemporary American South. Taking place in the states of Arkansas and Mississippi, these poems gather memories, voices and vistas to develop an understanding of place and identity that challenges traditional narratives about the region. Note: names, characters, businesses, places, events, locales, and incidents are either the products of the author's imagination or used in a fictitious manner.
