    Within the creative component of this dissertation, comprised of twelve interlinking poems titled An Exploration of Fractured Identity: The Self and Society, my discussion of identity was influenced by Modernist subject and technique, particular those used by T. S. Eliot. Eliot's use of poetic technique, though vastly changeable in his forty-eight years as a published poet, consistently rebelled against sentimentalism and romanticism, instead exploring the harsh flux of modernity. The thematic concerns of the human-metropolitan relationship, the psychological condition, human transience, and anxieties of the spiritual, are all examples of Modernism's affinity with the subject of identity.
