A. Madhavan's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: A Sudden Downpour by Valsa George (5/28/2015 12:55:00 AM)

    The poet evokes the surprise effect that a sudden shower of rain, with or without a thunder-storm,
    can awaken for those who resent having to work or just endure the sweltering heat of summer in
    many parts of India. Last night there was such a downpour, and today, in this southern town, far
    from the swathe of a heatwave, but still sweating and self-piteous. I am all for celebration in verse
    like this.

  • POEM: Now You Are Here by Janine Campbell (5/27/2015 10:04:00 PM)

    Is it an encomium of romantic- sentimental verse or meant as reflection of popular
    preferences in verse? Selections in PH will tell. 'Let us be singular' is my plea.

  • POEM: Tape And Glue by Tiffany Rose Moczydlowski (5/11/2015 2:51:00 AM)

    One impulse I feel when reading a poem which I wish to re-read some time later, is that poetry allows us
    to explore our innate aptitude to find parallels, similitude, metaphors and inter-connections in the world
    and life. (In 'Hamlet', the protagonist (who has psychic problems we
    may recognize) twits Polonius the courtier who agrees with the young Prince that a cloud is shaped like a
    camel, a weasel and a whale. (Act 3, Scene 2) . So 'tape and Glue' to mend a broken heart can pass perusal,
    if not conviction: be literary, not literal. So poetry transforms a romantic, sentiment or convention into something else, intangible, but not inaccessible to the imagination. Make them think anew. AM
