I will keep the blog going, and update it with notes on poetry occasionally. I am still a bit lost as to what ‘quality’ means today, ever. But I’ve settled on – easily communicable – approach to my own writing.
Non-music + non-poetic = Egotistical Sublime: without voice -> doubt in the senses. Not an appealing equation, but hopefully a meaningful one in this instance.
“The earth, draped in its verdant cloak, makes as little impression upon me as a ghost.” (Breton)
“I am not subject to all that I am.” (Sartre)
I suppose ‘quality’ might improve with a more robust literary grounding in theory (sublime, grotesque, etc.) and in general, the history of words and their unaccredited uses. So: be less a snob.
