Enjamb This


"If you find yourself automatically pausing at the end of every line, regardless of whether the meaning of the poem calls for a pause at that point..."

Try reading Chaucer in middle english and adhering to this. It will make your eyes bleed. I'm just trying to figure out what the words i'm reading mean, I don't have time for that puncuation poppycock. His poetry is so enjambed you don't know where the rhyme is half the time. If I try to focus on reading the poem the right way I will often times black out.
