Poetic Structure…Poetic Form…Huh?

26 02 2009


I just put up a new page with what I think might be a helpful essay for anyone trying to sort out the difference between poetic structure and poetic form, or for anyone trying to figure out why we need to make this distinction.

Check it out here.

(Hint: it’s WAY more than tomato/tomahto.)

The essay, “Poetic Structure and Poetic Form: The Necessary Differentiation,” originally appeared in American Poet, Volume 32, spring 2007, published by the Academy of American Poets.

I have a seriously great quote for advice on any writing at all – given by Adorno – its well worth a read, quite short….


I read it before every major structured piece of writing.

What exactly is the Adorno quote? I’m not sure the link actually gets me there…
