Yvor Winters

To say that a poet is justified in employing a disintegrating form in order to express a feeling of disintegration is merely a sophistical justification of bad poetry…In fact, all feeling…is a way of disintegration; poetic form is by definition a means to arrest the disintegration and order the feeling; and in so far as any poetry tends toward the formless, it fails to be expressive of anything.

  1. hmm…poetry is an expression of emotion that a person is unable to share or talk to someone about..it expresses emotion not only from their own aspect but also on socitey itself and its intrusion on people to conform….
