Abstract

Having a close relative develop cancer is a significant event for people that may affect them at many points during their life span. This article addresses the affective experience of a son's response to his father's cancer through a qualitative study involving the use of autobiographical poetry as data. The present study exemplifies expressive arts research methods, which are becoming increasingly influential in qualitative research. Poems are presented as narratives of the lived experience of the author.
