    Rune's last comments on poems and poets

    • POEM: Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll (5/9/2010 2:47:00 PM)

      Brillig doesn't mean brilliant, I don't know where some of you are getting your ideas.
      If you've read the novel the poem comes from, you'd have read this line:
      ''Brillig' means four o'clock in the afternoon - the time when you begin broiling things for dinner.'
      If anything, this poem is a wonderful example of using the sound and feel of words to set a tone or an atmosphere.
      Carroll was exceptionally good at inventing words that seem to have an innate meaning, a good number of his words have actually made their ways into dictionaries and everyday language ('chortle' is a good example) .

    • POEM: Bright Star, Would I Were Steadfast As Thou Art by John Keats (5/9/2010 2:22:00 PM)

      Why does everything have to be about that movie all of a sudden.
      I watched it a few months ago and thought it was good but it hardly did justice to Keats, no movie can.
      And besides, this is a lovely poem and I've loved it for years and years before the script of that movie was a vague idea in someone's mind.

    • POEM: Annabel Lee by Edgar Allan Poe (5/8/2010 1:04:00 AM)

      '...The angels, not half so happy in Heaven, / Went envying her and me...'

      Somehow, the A in 'angels' just fits with the alliteration on H. Maybe it's because the Hs are all followed by vowels and two of those vowels are As?
      No matter; 'not half so happy in Heaven' is a lovely alliterative line, but it's very much improved by 'the angels' in preceding it.
