    • Abstract:
      The writer discusses two poems, Lewis Carroll's “Jabberwocky” and Robert Frost's “After Apple Picking,” that influenced her at different formative moments in her life. She speculates that Carroll's poem, which she came to as a child, may have been more influential on her philosophical/metaphysical perspective on life than on her poetry, lending a hint of the grotesque or the surreal to her writing. She reveals that Frost's poem, which she read for the first time as a girl of 15, allowed her to see that the experiences of her domestic, apparently ordinary life, could be transmuted into worthy art.
