There are many people without whom this project would not have been possible. I would like to thank Dr. Randy Ingram for his generous support of this project through time spent with me in office hours and in class discussing this project, its problems, and its potential. These discussions were very useful and allowed me to come to this project intentionally and honestly. I would also like to thank my peers for similar reasons. For example, my classmate Chris was the one who came up with the idea of putting a Works Cited page at the end of the poem, rather than breaking it up with parenthetical citations as the reader went along. I feel that this decision makes sense artistically and also allows me to attain academic integrity. Other peers have also helped me think through the ways in which I could pay respect to a poet who has influenced me whose identity I may not share. This was certainly a big question for me, so I am thankful that I was able to discuss it with such caring and intelligent people. Finally, I would like to thank Dr. Suzanne Churchill for introducing me to Twine and to digital scholarship more generally. This project would not have come to fruition without the exposure to digital scholarship that she provided. Thank you, all.
