Abstract

The Truth Letters is a collection of poems (including a perspective from the author) written between April 2001 and November 2006. This collection is intended to reflect the journey of a poet through the spaces of language, history, and experience. In addition to exploring these themes on a creative level (through the poems), this collection attempts to trace, through the use of critical essay, the influences that continue to shape the author's language universe.
