Lesson 2 - Understanding Poetry



Meeting - "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived "



To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play "goes on" and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?

Rimbaud meets Verlaine and his family - "Do you think poets can learn from one another?"  - "Only if they're bad poets".

Arthur Rimbaud has returned home - "This work you doing... is it a kind of thing, that will lead to anything?" - "Nevertheless it's a kind of work I do"
