Another Mysterious Edition

I checked my mail this evening and was delighted to find yet another edition to my mysterious POETRY Magazine collection! This edition is tied for my favorite cover design with the July/August edition (the watercolor one on the bottom). I love the purpley shade of pink with the old English font. The back of every … Continue reading Another Mysterious Edition

World Poetry Day 2018

Hello everyone! I know it's been a crazy long time since I've posted. In my defense, Winter Quarter was crazy (it always is) and for mental health reasons I could barely even focus on schoolwork much less running a successful blog. All that being said, I am now back, hopefully on a much more regular … Continue reading World Poetry Day 2018

Structural Commentary – Ode to the West Wind, Percy Bysshe Shelley

What's this? Another ode? You may be wondering what my fascination with this form is. I acknowledge that by having two of the same form of poetry in a row could give this blog a one-note feel to it, but I can explain! You see, we analyzed John Keats's "Ode to a Nightingale" in class, … Continue reading Structural Commentary – Ode to the West Wind, Percy Bysshe Shelley

Structural Commentary – Ode to a Nightingale, John Keats

In class, we discussed and analyzed "Ode to a Nightingale" by John Keats (1819). Unfortunately, time only allowed us to barely skim the surface of the poem, so I thought I'd try my hand at analyzing it myself.

In high school, I wrote a rough draft of a manuscript for a dystopian novel that was over 300 pages long. … Continue reading Some Thoughts About Poetry

Autumn Book Recommendations

It's fall, y'all! The first day of autumn was two days ago and Colorado has decided to go from sunny, high 80s weather and hot to cold and rainy overnight. I couldn't be happier about it. I am so ready for sweater weather.

Starting Off My Quarter

So, it's been a while since I've posted anything, whoops. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things and get back on schedule. Fall 2017! It's here! Classes have begun, my residents are all settled in, and I'm currently working my 4AM desk shift. I got roughly 3.5 hours of sleep last night … Continue reading Starting Off My Quarter
