MASTER WORDSMITH

(4,5 Sterne)

Poetry lends itself to.many moods. One can abandon oneself to the soaring passion of Wordsworth or read and re-read Frost, attempting to wring every subtle meaning from his musings. The epics of Homer and The like give us fanciful historic narrative, and "device" poems such as "Canturbury Tales" or "Decameron" furnish us with various short stories loosely woven into a whole. Milton and Dante give us grandiose renderings of religious import. ACD gives us short poems which are witty and pithy, but my enjoyment of them lies in his carefully turned phrasing and unsurpassed rhyming meter. His is, indeed,the work of a brilliant wordsmith.
