I wanted to pos a response and/or observation to this from George Dance:
"..My main man (when it comes to criticism), Northrop Frye, says that lyric poets (in general) pass through three stages: first, poetry full of private allusion; second, a "social, allegorical, or metaphysical phase"; and finally, a time when
"the texture simplifies" and "meaning and imagery become transparent." I'm not sure if this type of thing is really what he means, but I'm generally happy with this sonnet. I'm sure there are many places where it can be improved, of course..."
But with Google groups fouled up and some kind of Saturday morning confusion in the air here at the estate, I reckon it'll have to wait.
Reminds me of some other archetypes right off hand, the old transition from Maiden to Crone in Wiccan Magick for instance.
Be Back soon... it's Helltown, baby.
