Abstract: The poems and stories in this thesis comprise a representative sample of the work I did while at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The Irish Lantern is a work in progress. It may eventually take many years to complete, but the seven poems contained here lay the foundation for the basic themes I will pursue in attempting to evoke the character of Ireland: love, war, religion, loneliness, poverty, and abundant natural beauty. There is no common theme among the short stories, although death is an important factor in all of them. None of these poems or stories has ever been published before.
