Abstract: The title of this thesis suggests harmoniousness as well as independence. The poems included in Poetic Polyphony are a multiplicity of sounds, like an echo. Also, like an echo, these sounds vary in tone. Poetic Polyphony is not the result of a pre-conceived idea. No particular subject or belief or feeling was selected to be written about. There is, however, a detectable melody which runs throughout the poetry and it emphasizes the importance of man as an individual. The poems are not descriptive in the sense that they are about stones, flowers, or seashells. They are poems that describe feelings, moods, and thoughts with which most or all of us have had some experience.
