Sharp Sand: Musicality in Poetry: Disagreeing with Jonathan Mayhew

What? Donald Justice disagrees with me? I must be right then.

But Joseph Duemer cannot avoid using the word "musical" about Justice himself.

Poems do have definable intonational contours, rhythms, formal structures, that, whether you call them "musical" or not, have their closest parallels in music. It's the "auditory imagination." Next you'll be saying that poetry is not a visual art!
