    Thanks for the link again! I think Jenny’s article was brilliant, well written and thought out. I also think she makes some good points about both genre’s learning from each other. I must say, the more I have explored different genre’s of poetry, the more I have started to wonder if we really should be pigeon holing the whole art form into different “types”.
