do you have time to chat about rime?
a few posts ago, i mentioned villa’s method
of “reversed consonance”
as well as a few books i could think of that experimented
with rime. in the comment
listed a few others:
K. Silem Mohammad, “A Thousand Devils”
Carl Martin, “Go Your Stations Girl” and “Genii Over Salzburg”
C. Bernstein (in his parodic mode)
Magee also co-wrote an essay with K. Mohammed called “Formalista!: Beats, Rhymes and the Avant-Garde” in 2001 (which might be published in the next issue of Combo magazine — so keep your ear out for that!)
DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE OTHER POETS — PAST OR PRESENT — THAT COME TO MIND?
ALSO, WHAT DO PEOPLE THINK ABOUT CONTEMPORARY USAGE / NON-USAGE OF RHYME? IS RHYME DEAD?
i think an anthology of experimental rhyme would be cool. does one exist?
FINALLY, Robert Duncan has a series of poems called “the structure of rime” … i never quite understood what he was talking about when he used the word “rime” – the poems don’t rhyme, so what structure is he talking about? what is “rime”? ANY INSIGHT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED …
please take a moment
