Word-Scales a Radical Approach to Poetry
|Author: ||Lurie, Toby|
Word-Scales is a term the poet devised to describe a process of composing poetry. It’s a method of creating with the language of words rather than the language of music. Although there are obvious differences between Word-Scales and music scales, the basic concepts of composing with them are much the same. Music forms are a primary agent in composing with Word-Scales. Those most prominently used are: fugue, rondo. Sonata, crab-fugue and serial forms.
