    This Craft of Verse PDF Ù This Craft Epub / this ebok, craft ebok, verse pdf, This Craft book, This Craft of Verse PDF/EPUBFound this utterly lovely little book of lectures practically hidden away in the deepest bowels of the compressed stacks when I went looking for something else on poetry Bought myself and my lady a copy almost immediately after I began reading it Whenever I have dipped into books of aesthetics I have had an uncomfortable feeling that I was reading the works of astronomers who never looked at the stars I mean that they were writing about poetry as if poetry were a task and not what it really is a passion and a joy 2 I would like to say that we make a very common mistake when we think we’re ignorant of something because we are unable to define it If we are in a Chestertonian mood one of the very best moods to be in I think we might say that we can define something only we know nothing about it 17 There are of course verses that are beautiful and meaningless Yet they still have a meaning—not to the reason but to the imagination 85httpmarklindnerinfoblog200901Anyone who kn

    This Craft of Verse PDF Ù This Craft Epub / this ebok, craft ebok, verse pdf, This Craft book, This Craft of Verse PDF/EPUBI read this book over breakfast I found that the format lended itself to such a casual reading short lectures larger print I really liked the layout of the book Well done typesetter You made reading this book a pleasure In typical Borges fashion a single page will move effortlessly through quotes and references to Don Quixote Arabian Nights Old English grammar and Milton most of the quotations are delivered from memory in their original languageOnly three stars however because a lot of the opinions anecdotes and commentary contained in this book are contained in other Borges books I've read So deja vu But not in a bad way More like the loveable old uncle who repeats the same stories over and over
