120 ~on poetry

A FEW DON’TS BY AN IMAGISTE

Credit: Amazon


Pay no attention to the criticism of men who have never themselves written a notable work.

Don’t retell in mediocre verse what has already been done in good prose.

Don’t think any intelligent person is going to be deceived when you try to shirk all the difficulties of the unspeakably difficult art of good prose by chopping your composition into line lengths.

Don’t imagine that the art of poetry is any simpler than the art of music.

Use either no ornament or good ornament.
