Jane Holland

“Rhyme is what launches the poem off into space, the white space of the page, the tense, humming space of the ear.  It both confirms and undoes the poet’s intentions, putting its finger on significant meaning whilst simultaneously pointing beyond it into a dark glimmering barely glimpsed or understood before the poem began to take shape.”

    Further food for thought from Jane’s post:

    “If the verb is the soul of the language, the rhyme must be the soul of the poem. Without it, nothing ascends. Nothing transcends.”
