generality

Posted to WritersAndGenres




scrap "iniquity" & the poem
works nicely. "iniquity" holds
no image; adhere to imagiste
teachings - the object is always
the adequate symbol/image...
william carlos williams states
on page one, book one of PATERSON
"say it--no ideas but in things"
avoid vagueness & generality at all
costs: there is nothing poetic about
being elusive. straightforwardness
is the mark of extreme competency.
