This is so no longer. Poets were once doers; they are now at best sayers, increasingly unheard.
This is one price of man's extreme specialization. The price paid may be more than the human gain, in this particular. The poet, like all artists, is one of the race's sensitives: one of those more finely attuned to phrase the past and the present acceptably, and sense and phrase the future.
The first necessary equipment is sincer- ity. This demands that commonplace phrasings must be avoided, in favor of fresh original expression of individual or group concentrated emotions. If the race recognizes these as its own, to that extent the poet will be hailed as poetically great.
Another essential is technical mastery; adeptness in the craft of poetry, skill in handling all the tools of the trade.
Familiarity with all the conventions will enable you to break them and make new ones when your fresh subject matter demands it. Technical mastery is as easy, and no easier, than learning how to raise better peas than your neighbor, or how to build better bridges and skyscrapers than anyone else. Having learned the craft, anyone with an ear for word-music can improvise flawless heroic blank verse or any other form of blank verse by the hour, or improvise elaborately rhymed sonnets with no appreciable hesitation.
This is not poetry. But the familiarity with the craft makes the coming of poetry easier, in the rare hours when the poet has a concentrated word that must be said. Poetic Greatness One can become great poetically, either in his own sight alone or in the opinions of others, without knowledge of the craft. Homer, Sappho, Villon, Burns, made their own patterns, or poured their burning emotional beauty into ready-made patterns followed without being comprehended. The definitions of patterns were made after- ward, from a scholastic study of poetry widely recognized as great.
Such greatness may be achieved by anyone today—the entirely satis- factory expression of one's soul's yearnings. With a complete technical mastery of the craft of poetry, any poet today can achieve complete greatness in his own sight. Whether he is hailed by others as great, and especially whether or not his name is hailed by his own and subsequent generations as great, depends largely on the extent to which his own concentrated heart-utterances express the desires of the race, in a new, fresh and original form.
Given such recognition by the race, an enduring poetic greatness has been achieved. The poet can no more control this than Cnut could act as dictator over the tide.
How Poems Come Verse upon any theme, and in treatment ranging from the most ponderously serious to the most frivolously flippant, can be manufactured at any time. Its technique is comparatively simple.
Its devices, meter, rhyme, alliteration, assonance, consonance, stanza arrangement may be mastered as easily as multiplication tables.
Poetry comes differently. It is primarily the intellect that manufac- tures verse; but the intellect plays only a secondary part in creating poetry. The desire that seeks expression, which it finds in the poem, springs from a deeper basic source than thinking. Man, indeed all forms of life, are compact of desires. The fulfillment of one desire causes others to spring hydra-like from its invisible corpse.
Psycholo- gists tell us that dreams are likewise expressions of desire, in the form of desires fulfilled; that is, wish fulfillments. Much thinking is like- wise wish fulfillment; there is truth in Wordsworth's dictum, "The wish is father to the thought.
As one poet has it: Singing is sweet; but be sure of this, Lips only sing when they cannot kiss.
Art, James Thomson. Because of the obstacle, a tremendous inner compulsion comes upon the sensitive poet to seek relief by creating his wish-fulfillment in words: and so it is that poems are born.
Inspiration blows from no outer sky, but from the universe of desires within.
The woman's insistent inner com- pulsion to deliver her child at the appointed hour is hardly more shat- ter ingly imperative than the true poet's insistent inner commandment to write. At times the whole poem forms itself within the mind, before the first word is written down. At times a couplet, a single line—perhaps the first, but more often the last—or even a phrase or a mood comes first, with the dominant insistence that it be given the intermittent immortality of writing.
The wise procedure for the poet is to write down what comes, as it comes, even if only a single line or less is the result. As far as possible, write out the poem without delay, to prevent another visitor from Porlock's silencing part of your poem forever, as Coleridge's Kubla Khan was silenced forever. When the poem or poetic fragment is written down, the critical intellect comes into play.
A skilled orator might be able to tweak the pronunciation of certain words to facilitate a stronger rhyme for example, pronouncing 'orange' as 'oringe' to rhyme with 'door hinge' One view of rhyme in English is from John Milton 's preface to Paradise Lost : The Measure is English Heroic Verse without Rime, as that of Homer in Greek, and of Virgil in Latin; Rime being no necessary Adjunct or true Ornament of Poem or good Verse, in longer Works especially, but the Invention of a barbarous Age, to set off wretched matter and lame Meeter; grac't indeed since by the use of some famous modern Poets, carried away by Custom A more tempered view is taken by W.
Auden in The Dyer's Hand : Rhymes, meters, stanza forms, etc. If the master is fair enough to win their affection and firm enough to command their respect, the result is an orderly happy household. If he is too tyrannical, they give notice; if he lacks authority, they become slovenly, impertinent, drunk and dishonest.
Forced or clumsy rhyme is often a key ingredient of doggerel.
French[ edit ] In French poetry , unlike in English, it is common to have identical rhymes, in which not only the vowels of the final syllables of the lines rhyme, but their onset consonants "consonnes d'appui" as well.
To the ear of someone accustomed to English verse, this often sounds like a very weak rhyme. For example, an English perfect rhyme of homophones, flour and flower, would seem weak, whereas a French rhyme of homophones doigt "finger" and doit "must" or point "point" and point "not" is not only acceptable but quite common.
Rhymes are sometimes classified into the categories of "rime pauvre" "poor rhyme" , "rime suffisante" "sufficient rhyme" , " rime riche " "rich rhyme" and "rime richissime" "very rich rhyme" , according to the number of rhyming sounds in the two words or in the parts of the two verses. For example, to rhyme "tu" with "vu" would be a poor rhyme the words have only the vowel in common , to rhyme "pas" with "bras" a sufficient rhyme with the vowel and the silent consonant in common , and "tante" with "attente" a rich rhyme with the vowel, the onset consonant, and the coda consonant with its mute "e" in common.
Authorities disagree, however, on exactly where to place the boundaries between the categories. Holorime is an extreme example of rime richissime spanning an entire verse. Alphonse Allais was a notable exponent of holorime.
Classical French rhyme not only differs from English rhyme in its different treatment of onset consonants. It also treats coda consonants in a distinctive way.
French spelling includes several final letters that are no longer pronounced, and that in many cases have never been pronounced. Such final unpronounced letters continue to affect rhyme according to the rules of Classical French versification.
They are encountered in almost all of the preth-century French verse texts, but these rhyming rules are almost never taken into account from the 20th century. The most important "silent" letter is the " mute e ". In spoken French today, final "e" is, in some regional accents in Paris for example , omitted after consonants; but in Classical French prosody, it was considered an integral part of the rhyme even when following the vowel.
Rhyming words ending with this silent "e" were said to make up a "double rhyme", while words not ending with this silent "e" made up a "single rhyme". It was a principle of stanza-formation that single and double rhymes had to alternate in the stanza.
