Abstract

My poetic inquiry originated from reflecting on Ken Plummer’s (2019) book, Narrative Power, where Plummer insightfully discusses the intertwined nature of narratives with our lives. My poem is about the power of narratives to shape lives (i.e., toward suffering or liberation) and the role of human agency in giving life to narratives. My interest rests on the point of power in between narratives where there is a possibility for change, in which humans are the key players. This inquiry draws on narratives, memory, memory-making, imagination, and remembering.
