ooh i have got nothing...i was home schooled :/
Do you think we have become less appreciative of simple beautiful poetry?
( meaning; we are expecting to read something brilliant, better than what we've read, maybe with bigger words, more complex imagery, expressed in more unique ways than ever, language, perhaps...shock value)
Sometimes I think the classic writers like yeats or frost wouldn't have a chance in getting published or be appreciated if they were around right now. What do you think? no: sometimes the simplest can be the most pure. i'd suggest that the longer we've been reading and writing, the more we come across people saying things in ways we've read (and written ourselves) too often which might have us hungering for fresh input. on the flipside, we also become more able to appreciate nuances and subtleties that don't require elaborate phrases and can often find a more complete picture simply where we're more able to follow the breadcrumb clues a writer leaves in their words.
have you ever seriously wanted to live as a hermit, away from people as much as possible?
