How can we live authentically and with purpose? How can we conduct our day to day lives, while faced with our own mortality?
These are several of the principle themes focused upon within existentialist philosophy, the philosophy of existing as a mortal human being. I chose to study existentialist philosophy through the lens of one of my other interests: French poetry. This combination has allowed me to approach both the art of poetry and the topic of existentialism from both passive and active standpoints: by reading the literature and writing my own poetry in response. My study of French poetry has followed a chronological progression throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the Romantic, Modernist, and Surrealist periods of poetry and literature.
The roots of existentialism began in the late nineteenth century, with the work of philosophers Soren Kierkegaard and Friedrich Nietzsche, and progressed with the work of the German philosopher Martin Heidegger.
19th Century Romantic Aesthetics
Other French philosophers including Simone de Beauvoir and Maurice Merleau-Ponty have both greatly enhanced and helped define the existentialist tradition. My study has culminated in a collection of pastiches, my own original poetry, exploring the styles of the poets previously mentioned, and revolving around the philosophies of the four French philosophers named above.

To augment my collection, I have also added brief explanations and reflections to assist my readers with understanding the subject matter, the intentions with which I wrote, and to help them appreciate the collection of poetry as a whole.
