Anne Elliot Female, 21, United States (8/8/2012 11:09:00 AM)

EMILY DICKINSON IS A CREATION OF IDEOLOGISTS AND FEMINISTS

Emily Dickinson only wrote prose and not poetry-according to the definition of poetry ie structured lines with form metre

Emily Dickinson is not a poet but if one is to be gracious she is a very bad poet as she does not conform to metre-which is the defining element to make something poetry

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verse_%28poetry%29

“The word " verse" is commonly used in lieu of " poetry" to distinguish it from prose. Where the common unit of poetry, that is, verse, is based on meter or rhyme

Dickinson did not write in metre
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emily_Dickinson#Structure_and_syntax


Dickinson avoids pentameter, opting more generally for trimeter, tetrameter and, less often, dimeter. Sometimes her use of these meters is regular, but oftentimes it is irregular


You can call their work anything you want but you cant call it poetry as their works are not in metre ie structure which is the definition of poetry the definition of poetry is clear and these writers did not not write poetry If you dont like the definition of poetry that is just to bad as the definition is clear

Dickinson has been invented constructed by modern critics as being a great poet

From being unskilled and lacking knowledge she has now been constructed into a great poet

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emily_Dickinson#Structure_and_syntax

" Rather than seeing Dickinson's poetic styling as a result of lack of knowledge or skill, modern critics believed the irregularities were consciously artistic



With the growing popularity of modernist poetry in the 1920s, Dickinson's failure to conform to 19th-century poetic form was no longer surprising nor distasteful to new generations of readers. Dickinson was suddenly referred to by various critics as a great woman poet, and a cult following began to form

The second wave of feminism created greater cultural sympathy for her as a female poet"


The modernist and feminists critics that have constructed Dickinson into being a great poet are open to ridicule as in fact Dickinson by her contemporaries and the definition of poetry ie metre is no a poet at all or if gracious she is not a great poet but a VERY BAD POET

    Yeah Anne, yes... some know... they know... PH knows, well...?
    And, and... of course, they who've wrestled pedantic tone, know too.
    Grappling the distance and to ebbing degree, and then... to naught -
    they've vanquished inordinate verse and its poetic cousin. They have
    special spews wrought in (that) distant land and where behemoth goDs
    rule, and with rolling words like bold-her's... BIG ROCKS... (that) -- ]
    idiosyncratic concern. Ask one of them, I knew one that said: he knew too...
    when he was 19, but... forgot... when he turned... the corner..............8hATE
