Abstract: This thesis consists of thirty-three poems which are concerned with change and the effect of the imagination on experience. In the poems it is primarily the imagination which attempts to give a meaning, an order, and a direction to life. More specifically, the poems recognize the need for action or striving in a world that appears indifferent to individual action. The central poem is "On This or That Side of Breaking"; the other poems support and make more concrete the prevailing theme of the above poem. Although they cannot be called "nature poems" many of the compositions rely on imagery taken from nature; and, generally, rhyme and meter are used to enhance the sound of the poems.
