Subject: Re: Grammar (you and I)
Grammar is central to any genuine poetics because it is a constant cue to
relations of words and phrases. And in poetry it is fundamental to see
nuanced relations. Sorry, but I think only amateurs think otherwise
My God, absolutely. Nancy is right -- too bad so damn many poets are amateurs.
