GUEST POST AT POETIC ASIDES AND MORE

Yesterday (Aug.21, 2015) my guest post “THE SCIENCE OF POETRY” appeared on the POETIC ASIDES blog page. The correlation between science and poetry was the main topic and in it I had revealed a pet project of mine, introducing the PERIODIC TABLE OF POETIC ELEMENTS. This re-incarnation highlights 118 poetic forms and devices upon which poets use and rely upon.

The Table may be enlarged and printed for your reference. A companion to this chart is a file of poetic forms that are included. It is a three-hundred plus paged “book”. The red numbers on the chart are the page number in the file where they appear. Each page contains the poetic symbol and its position on the chart. Below are the links to the file. We will be making use of this chart and file in a future exercise here at PHOENIX RISING.

  1. To form or not to form, that is the question of the evening with my poet husband. This reflects hours of work, a labor of love that I love… and it sparks much scratching and scribbling. Thank you
