The image came to me of the pragmatic dimension of poetic language as a sort of hazy field of connotation. That is, since the poem is not usually functioning pragmatically, all those pragmatic markers are let loose to be free radicals. I'm going to have to go back to Grice and explain what I mean more precisely.

I change my blog description frequently. As you can see this is the temporary home of the "Friends of C. Dale Young" and the "David Shapiro Fan Club." Next week it will probably be the "Friends of Gary Sullivan."
