Evaluation

As you're thinking about how to evaluate poetry, consider the poet Gary Sullivan's top five poetry pet peeves. There are also a few examples of evaluation posted on bspace under "Resources." The examples given are largely negative, because it's easy to understand negative formulations, but keep in mind that we really want to know what makes good literature. Williams's essay on Marianne Moore is mostly focused on what's good about her poetry, for example.
