This thesis is a creative and critical examination of transposing corporeal imagery from quotidian sources such as women’s beauty and fashion magazines into poetic form and engaging with the Fourth Wave of Feminism and the material conditions of women. As such, it contains a creative element, which is a collection of poetry entitled Woman, Tagged. The creative element is accompanied by a reflective critical commentary examining the methodology and creative process of writing Woman, Tagged, research and observations into corporeal imagery as it is presented in women’s poetry and the waves of feminism with emphasis on the Fourth Wave and materialist feminism. Moreover, as the poetry collection is the original contribution to knowledge, the critical aspect exists not to critique the Fourth Wave, but to contextualise Woman, Tagged as a poetic response to the Fourth Wave. This thesis deploys a methodology of close reading and critical engagement with women’s poetry, women’s magazines, and the online strategies and campaigns of the Fourth Wave of feminism.
