In response to Poetry, written by Cassia on October 10, 1997 at 14:10:08
] ] Cassia, thanks for your email, and I look forward to this discussion very much. I'm going to have to go out and get myself another copy since mine is in Oz! It's going to be fun to re read it slowly and with coversation...though I still don't know if I'll manage the poetry!
I totally agree with Cassia. The poetry is intimidating and I'm no poetry buff myself. While there are plot points and little hints that make more sense after the fact, I've always felt that you could skip it and later appreciate it for what it could represent--just a little tour de force for the author!!
