Thanks for dropping by xiv lines (affectionately xiv), a site supporting the Formalist Poetry Movement. Here there is an emphasis on the composition and appreciation of traditional sonnets.
At xiv, we concentrate on various aspects of formal poetry paying special attention to meter, rime, and construction.
Articles about poetry (poesy and prosody) will be in lesson format with takeaways that will serve as a useful reference for later.
There will be various essays, poems, and further words from The Critic. The Critic will comprise of articles as general discussion on topics relevant to poetry and analyses of poems. All these, as critiques will be, are individual opinions.
Click on the blog link (here or above) to read the posts as I welcome you to the world of formal poetry and critique!
