Ongoing controversy …

… On the Distinction between Verse and Poetry, a Classical Solution. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The essay follows some very fine poems.

…if poetry and verse are categorically different things, those who like their poetry to be verse and those who do not might just as well go their separate ways.
Some of us just like poetry, whether its verse is free or formal. For surely, we cannot excommunicate H.D. and Whitman.
