It's all about the visual

Tonight I decided to look up Concrete Poetry since Jay's lesson made such an impact on me as noticed by this entry. Our good ol' Bedford tells me that the other names for this type of poetry is also called pattern poetry or shaped verse. The best point to remember when reading concrete poetry is that the poem may not make sense without the pattern that it is being formed into. That is all part of it. Some of the authors of this are George Herbert and e.e. cummings.

I'm not going to attempt to do this for you right now, but I will work on some and post again later when I have something I deem worthy of placing on my blog for the world to see.
