The Missing Music in Today's Poetry

The Missing Music in Today's Poetry
October 09, 2013, 01:22:57 PM
I miss what I used to enjoy. I miss the poetry I used to hear in my head after reading it on the page. I miss the sound it used to make. Very little of what I read now seems truly memorable in the sense that it lends itself to memorization. Edmundson might say that's partially because it's not worth committing to memory. Me, I just think poets don't care enough about a poem's music, which means they don't expect us to recite their poems 10 minutes or 10 years after we've read them.
