Metamodern Poetry: An Introduction

Abduction, by Jesse Mockrin

Here, at last, is the promised post on metamodern poetry — or, at least, what I think metamodern poetry is and ought to be, or at least, how I practice metamodern poetry. In other words, I’m going to present you with my theory of poetry writing. In any class on poetry writing — even in a blog of mini-lessons — one ought to know the teacher’s theory of poetry. That way, you know where they are coming from, and you can make up your own mind about what you want to pay attention to and what you want to ignore in the development of your own poetry.
