Is this a new form I’m not familiar with?
Honestly, I think the all-title format of this post is the byproduct of having more exposure to Twitter than blogs lately.
But I do think there’s something to the argument that poetry, with its incontestably dense semantic value, feels like astronauts’ space food in comparison to more explicitly worded treatises.
“Hey, this Weltanschauung tastes like chocolate!”
Which is the densest of them all: Homer, Joyce, or Tennyson?
this is a reply in which i remember to check “notify me of followup comments”
Personally, I can’t stand Tennyson. Homer I feel I can’t judge because I’d actually be criticizing some Romantic, and Joyce I’m honestly rather partial to.
So, Tennyson, although I might be conflating “bad” and “dense.”
It’s been a month…
