Abstract: This creative dissertation is comprised of a poetry collection titled Zanesville & Western and a scholarly apparatus that offers background for the creation of the poetry collection. The purpose of this creative dissertation is to challenge the narrow portrayal regional poetry is typically confined to and to reconsider location as a creative impetus for poetry through the examination of other poets’ work and my own work. My dissertation, which consists of a collection of original poetry accompanied by a scholarly critical essay, reconsiders the history, aesthetics, and politics of place in American poetry. Specifically, my essay argues that place is an inescapable aspect of poetry, and in my poems explore the ways in which place can represent history, both public and personal.
