After last class’s crit, I went back and revisited / refined my concept for my Tender Buttons book of poetry. After analyzing the poetry further (and my concept) I came to the realization that this is all about decoding the poems: going from the jumbled mess they appear to be to a place of a bit more understanding– usually this is achieved by breaking it down line by line, for me at least. It’s like seeing a whole cake and eating it piece by piece. The examples shown on this page exemplify two ways I plan on “decoding” Stein’s poetry for the book.
