really liked it

This book is heavy. It hurt my back carrying it around. I once imagined it bloated and discarded in my bathtub. I admit--I didn't read it in its entirety, nor was I expected to for the Poetics class this last semester. But the essays in this book I did read helped me to form a clearer idea of what I believe good poetry should be. Of course, I still expect that idea to change.
Also, I had never read Marx before I read him in this book. Geez Louise. Why hadn't I?
