  1. Patrick, this is a terrific read in all the senses the word has, including a flicker of the crime scene spin off that we ardently await: TLLCSS, True Life Literary Crime Scene Squad. I’ll print this out and pass it on to Wilbur. You should consider publishing your critical essays as a book (though it won’t reach the audience your site does), one which both the clueless and the clued in about what poetry can accomplish will be grateful.

    • Hey Robert, it’s nice to hear from you again. I’m not sure which post you’re responding to, but I doubt it’s this one. :-) In any case, I’m glad you enjoyed it, whichever one it was. My analyses of poems have been getting better, I think, as I settle on a methodology (as much annotation as analysis). I’ve thought about how these posts might appear in book form. They would have to be drastically altered. The online format allows for a certain kind of presentation that would be hard to match on the page.
