The art most attentive to pattern is poetry. For the next two weeks, we will look at
how rhythm and syntax operate in poems, and what effect this has on our response as reader. The Bishop, Lawrence, Justice poems cited above come from Ellen Bryant Voigt's book, "The Art of Syntax" (rhythm of thought, rhythm of song).
