Condescending ? I think not !<quoted text>
You think I was being cute. The point being poetry does not have to be long winded to be effective. Rene Char joined the Surrealist group in 1929, and edited a collection of poems with Breton and Eluard in 1930. I discounted it as well the first time I read it until I realized that he had to have meant more by it. Maybe the woman he was with didn't and so he felt his manhood was threatened or that she really didn't love him the way he loved her.
Please don't condescend to me. I am well aware of how much poetry means.
Also, I am to tired for this, so goodnight, sir.
.....kindly check your facts "Nina" I was quoting a few lines from Audre Lorde, if you might have taken the time to check closer.....something to the effect, as you were doing when you quoted your piece by "Rene Char."
Thanks for the lesson in the abridged, and somewhat diminished history of Surrealist poetry....I'm well aware of the Poets you've mentioned.........a little more tact and courtesy by you, and I might have saved you the time explaining......and you may have retired earlier....Thank you and Goodnight !
