I hate the "content mining" mode in criticism. It's not as though I never did it myself. There's a point at which everyone has to do some of it in some fashion, but I don't like it. They call formalism sterile, but what is really sterile is a mode that doesn't attend to form, the living breathing soul of the poem is its rhythms, its particular cadence.


The "seven times" rule. The chimney to your gas appliances cannot be more than seven times the diameter of the smallest duct in one of said appliances. Selling a house is not fun. Six and seven hundred dollar repairs lurk around every corner.

Buying one isn't any fun either.
