Abstract: This dissertation is comprised of two parts. The first is called “Dollo & Me (Aftermath with Permutations)” and is an unconventional and nonlinear memoir addressing the aftermath of violence and the changes that are required for survival. It specifically looks at my twenties and thirties and tackles the various manifestations of trauma in my life. Two essays frame the manuscript: one as Chapter Zero and one as Chapter Oh. The body of the manuscript is contained in seventeen numerical chapters. The second part of this dissertation manuscript is comprised of a new “poetic” play titled “The Relenting.” The play addresses my encounter with a rattlesnake in my living room and enacts a literary and archetypal journey that could not have been undertaken without first doing the work of “Dollo & Me.”
