I once heard someone say there was only one correct way to write and communicate the English language properly. I had to chime in and tell him he was wrong. The English language can as poetic as any other language. One must experiment with it, twist it, sample words and phrases to learn how to use it. There’s no set precedence when it comes to poetic expressions in literature. When it comes to a poet or author using words to create an imagery vision or emotional content.
I’ve sadly notice the norm today is that every one must writes the same. I find that very boring. I think each poet or author could express their own individuality in their work. My literary art professor called epitome “the cookie cutter syndrome” of literary work and would hand you your paper back and tell you to be more imaginative if you handed in something sounding remotely like what is already out there. She didn’t mind parody of work but it had to be written in your own expression unlike anything you had seen. I wondered, some days what did she do? Watch every program or read every book she thought her students might read or watch?
So I asked her one day did she review every movie or book out there? And she replied. “No, I’ve had kids so I know when you are being lazy.” LOL!
