Contends that modern poetry, for all its peculiarity, generates its creativity from everyday language, rather than from a specific poetic vocabulary. Discusses meaning, compensating for the diminishing use of meter and rhyme, limits on using the colloquial, grammatical structure, and other topics. Acidic paper. Annotation c.
