Thank you for this fine post. From a related angle, I cringe when students fixate on "literary polish" rather than the heart of the story, especially in lifestories and memoir!

Lisa Willinger

People probably assume that "literary" means obscure, hard to understand writing. (Michael Ondaatje's work springs to mind---and I say this fondly as I enjoy his novels and his memoir.)

Works I love most include thinking and ideas but the thinking is rooted in the body, in the world of physical experience.

I love the poems of Robert Hass because I think his poems achieve this. His "Twentieth Century Pleasures," a book of literary criticism also achieves this marriage of body and mind in my opinion.

nice post! :)
Thanks Barbara

He has svreed as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Coach since November 1995. He has svreed as a member of Coach outlet Board of Directors since June 1, 2000, the date of incorporation. Of the 72 defects detected in the coach outlet canada rakes, major ones are fragile pneumatic pipes used in the braking system that often result in brake-binding; use of low-capacity inverters that are failing to provide adequate power back-up to the air-conditioning apparatus inside the rakes and the problem of no-motoring' in which a rake does not get traction to move forward.

Words come from emotions felt and toghuht out at leisure, and there is no blame attached to not finding the right words at the first attempt.Just to take your poem here: think of the logic of language Wanting perfection Looking for some sign of life Alone but not lost Taking stock of soul Knowing there are those who care (are? meaning not clear) Jumping with no net Mov(ing) beyond the past Becoming more like myself Achieving great things I am not empty This path will lead to greatness Patience is needed There is no failure My heart can find truth and love I must forgive…meFirst of all, abandon the haiku format it is a poor format for expressing any real toghuhts, being designed for ornamental expression. It will free up your sentences too and allow a real sense of expression. You have things to say and I would love to hear you say them in a more natural form. The photos speak for themselves and are exquisite.

Comments can be so educational. And seoitemms they leave me speechless. I mean, just what else can I say about a rouge named Orgasm? Sure, there are lots of jokes pressing up against the rope, but I'm not going to go there. Nope. I like to preserve the illusion that I have class.
