A Critic of Thomas Pynchon

(And other steam of consciousness writers) Trying to read this BBbbbllllizzard of words on the page of this damned author who posed as sage Who mystifies the simplest songs and amorphousises way to long for the rational mind to make a connection with the gist the pace the race the common place. The form so deformed as to be un analyzable to be un surmisable even for the daft. The contrite are right when they refuse to take a bite in fright for to read such a Bliizardddddddd of words on the page does nothing but put one in a daze.

Hi Deb, I have read so much 'so-called' poetry that has tied my mind in a knot. I think this is what turns a lot people off this wonderful art form. Re: Pauline Johnson. She is probably the most famous Canadian Poet of all timed5p5. She was born about an hours drive from where I currently live.

Sounds like this is one verbose person who is a bore. There is a powerful bit of difference in having something to say and having to say something isn't there. Thank you for your comments and the fact that you found one of my poems of interest. Keep writing. Sara
