Don Hagelberg's last comments on poems and poets

  • POET: Emily Dickinson (7/11/2009 4:17:00 PM)

    Poets can learn a great deal from Miss Emily.

    First they can learn that using predictable rhymes, they steal one half of the impact of surprise which Miss Emily achieves.

    In many on these instances, Miss Emily uses assonance and consonance instead of full male or female rhyme.

    No! Miss Emily is not a poet for the simple minded. On the contrary, she puts her own twist to the New England well read citizen of the early 1800's.

    She remains a poet of innovation and whould be recognized as such: old pattern breaker, new pattern maker.
