Ch. 13 of Writing About Literature.

"Poets invite us to change speeds while reading--to slow down and linger over some words and sounds and to pass rapidly over others" (185).

If only we had read this chapter sooner, because I just had to write and do an essay on a sonnet in iambic pantameter. Oh well...

I have to admit that figuring out the meter of a poem is still a little tricky for me. However, from reading more Shakepeare sonnets, I'm slowly starting to get the hang of it. That, and I'm also becoming more of a poetry fan (*GASP*), but mostly the really really old stuff.

To click or not to click... do it anyway
