the threads fail because the participants think it's about being a poet rather than writing a poem.

> the threads fail because the participants think it's about being a
> poet rather than writing a poem.Well, let’s see if we can keep up, and along with joey’s line of thought.

Joey has postulated that the threads concerning the critical review of poetry, fail because the participants are more concerned about being a poet, than actually writing a poem.

Well. One could take a certain exception towards that somewhat confused logic.

In order to counter joey’s argument we need to establish what joey considers the words poet and poetry mean; at least to him.

As poetry starts with a poet, we need to define what a poet is. The normal concept of a poet is one that is skilled in the writing of poetry. Therefore following logic and its assumption to its lowest common denominator, it could be argued that there are in fact no poets on PC.

Therefore it is quite logical to assume, that all threads started in respect off an expected input by poets, are to be judged by lack of a certain qualification doomed to failure.

As such the question of poetry no longer arises.

Impeccable logic and with a rapier blade, and we have a man who would have advised Kings, better, how to keep a country whole: by peaceful words and good men with swords. kudos to the fighters.

Joey, the threads fail because you have yet to learn the definition of insanity -
Doing the same thing over and over, hoping for another result.

Do you not see that you are not convincing anyone with your arguments toward your opinions?

If you continue, one must assume you are insane, by definition.

So sorry about that but if the mental shoe fits...

thanks for that clarity, Isabelle.

who determines failure? success?

re: the threads fail  Isabelle5  2 Oct 08 10:28AM Thread Closed

In poetry?  The poet is the only one who can make that declaration.  Others can say it's bad or incomplete or whatever but if it said what was needed, isn't that success to the poet?
