The Poetician

This website provides an ongoing collection on resources, articles and critical rants regarding the true nature of English poetry over 1,300 years.

It addresses the question ‘What is poetry?’ It deals primarily with matters of metre and rhythm in poetry, and with ‘free verse’, which I consider to be a different sort of writing.

I am in discussion and dispute with the Poetry Society and many individuals about these matters.
