The published poems that form the authors ‘Slow Combusting Hymn’ portfolio reflect aspects of the scope and experience of their doctoral program and research interests, which have at their core a personal engagement with writing as a therapeutic response to witnessing another person’s illness or death. These poems might be regarded as works of mourning, and a responsive insistence on creating some kind of textual continuity.
