The Edited Poems
Here you will find the ten edited first pages of each collection.
We want your thoughts:
Does an edit still achieve what the original poem did?
Can an edit leave the heart of a poem intact?
Will a version that you know is an edit, never be quite as original as the the published poem?
Will an edit always be better or worse?
Does it matter if you’ve read the original?
Can editing unlock something completely new?
Can an edit reveal meanings latent in the original?
You can judge for yourselves on April 1st….
