    Poet and Speaker of a Poem: Seldom the Same

    3 days ago

    The speaker of a poem is seldom the poet. A poem is a dramatization similar to a play. The speaker is a created character, crafted by the poet to speak the message of the poem. Even when a poet shares sentiment with the speaker, they should be considered separate entities.

    Dr. Samuel Johnson’s Error: Replacing "Rime" with "Rhyme"

    2 days ago

    In the 18th century, Dr. Samuel Johnson (1709-1784) made an etymological error that poets, scholars, critics, and editors even today continue to perpetuate. Johnson incorrectly surmised that "rime" was a derivative of "rythmos"; thus, he altered the spelling from "rime" to "rhyme."

    2 days ago

    This glossary of literary devices features definitions of terms used in my commentaries on poems. Many have been employed for centuries, but I have also coined a number of terms such as "versagraph," conflating "verse paragraph," and "scatter rime," an innovative rime scheme.

    For Emily Dickinson, the seasons offered ample opportunities for verse creation, and her love for all of the seasons is quite evident in her poems. However, her poetic dramas become especially deep and profound in her winter poems.
