Yi is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of English. She is interested in confessional poetry in postwar America and the dynamics between poets’ biographies and crafted poetic personae, which draw upon certain reputations in the public imagination and affinity. Her project seeks to challenge prescriptive readings of the confessional poets and poetry that have been rooted in gendered and genre-specific assumptions about the term confession.
