Art of Poetry

Posted by Wolfgang Somary on November 23, 2011

This essay is dedicated to those who work at the craft of verbal expression and also for those who read poetry for sheer enjoyment and hope to derive more pleasure from their reading. The author’s concern is craftsmanship, not ideology; and the examples I have selected come from diverse sources of writing, both contemporary and traditional. They exclude experimental or unstructured poetry, for which I prefer to let others speak. In order to give this essay more spice, I have quoted controversial remarks from some great critics, which may pleasantly guide or deliciously confuse the reader.
