My research focuses on how young men in prison perform/form/reform their narrative identity during the participation in a new spoken word poetry programme in a Macedonian prison. In this presentation I will elaborate and illustrate the use of the method of cubist poetic portraiture for life story analysis which yields profound insights into the nature of narrative identity. The cubist poetic portraiture method involves reflective processes of combining narrative, cubist poetic techniques, and collage making as data generation, interpretation and findings clarification.
