it’s true, over at galileo’s blog, he writes:
“What if we were having a conversation about the three main threads of aesthetics in contemporary verse which ran more along these lines:
Pragmatic Poetry. Poetry whose primary linguistic device is pragmatics. Formerly: SoQ.
Example: Robert Bly
Syntactic Poetry. Poetry whose primary linguistic device is syntactics. Formerly: Post-avant.
Example: Ron Silliman
Cognitive-Semantic Poetry. Poetry whose primary linguistic device is cognitive semantics. Formerly: Unclassified. Example: Joshua Beckman.”
everyone should go over to galileo’s blog and thank him for freeing us from the constraining School O’ Quietude / post avant planetary system! now we have a third planet! and while we’re at it, we should thank him for defining our poetic universe as completely covered in whiteness! they should hire galileo over the poetry foundation, where 2008 was a snow white kind of year.
