I enjoyed your post about Harpur and Kendall, especially the way you highlighted the difference in values through contrast and comparison. I do however, disagree with your statement that the poets “share similar writing styles.” I think that Harpur relies much more heavily on structure and texture of his poem to convey his experiences by changing the length of the stanzas and using enjambement during the disruptive part of the poem to have a hurried effect on the reader. In contrast to that, Kendall’s poetry has a consistent flow to it which conveys a sense of wander and awe which is then enhanced through the imagery used.
Good work on the blog 🙂
