This Independent Study thesis is on metaphor. It describes first how metaphor can semantically mean, then argues that it can create meaning, and finally argues that poetry, because it is inherently metaphorical, is a breeding ground for meaning. Following the philosophy chapters are forty-four poems that act as a sort of artistic argumentation for the chapters preceding them.
