From "Bruce" (if that is his real name), we heard that he recently shared our commentary on the New Yorker's recent feature on "The 100 Most Important Events From The World Of Poetry" (HERE).
As stated in our response shown to the left, our research on the life and poetry on Emmett Lee Dickinson (Emily Dickinson's third cousin, twice removed -- at her request) is as vital as it is nugatory!
By the way, we assume that "wag" is an acronym for "writer and gentleman." No?
We also heard from a "Bruce" (if that is his real name -- and maybe he's the same person as the "Bruce" above?) that he was "lazy about digging in" to our work on Emmett Lee Dickinson (Emily Dickinson's third cousin, twice removed -- at her request). We can only hope that others do not procrastinate when it comes to exploring the life and work of America's greatest poet as our research on Dickinson is as vital as it is nugatory!
By the way, for those of you new to Dickinson, "Coffee, of course" refers to Dickinson's love of coffee (HERE), of course.
From an unnamed source (perhaps named "Bruce"?) we heard high praise!
If you know of anyone who is hesitating from "digging in" to our work on Emmett Lee Dickinson (Emily Dickinson's third cousin, twice removed -- at her request), perhaps you can persuade them to get started with a similar commendation.
Oh, and be sure to explain that this research is as vital as it is nugatory.
By the way, we loved the multiple exclamation points. It shows a deep commitment to Dickinson and our site.
Alas, we were disheartened to hear from "Kathryn" (if that is her real name).
We assure you, dear Kathryn, that everything on our site is thoroughly researched and 100% true. As a matter of fact, we have received countless awards for our authenticity and veracity, including the American Library Association's Seal of Correctitude and Bona Fide Authenticity, the Distinguished "VIP" Webby Award for Verity, Integrity, and Probity, and the Blue Ribbon of Excellence from the President's Commission for Internet Veracity and Online Quality. Don't believe us? Look HERE.
We can only imagine that "Kathryn" is a heartless soul in desperate need of a colonoscopy, very severe dental work, a tax audit, and front row seats to her local Community Theatre's production of Cats on consecutive nights.
We certainly heard high praise from "Terry" (if that is his or her real name) -- and we can only imagine that "Terry" is as insightful as he/she is good looking.
We're not quite sure what "Terry" meant when he or she referred to our research as "this elaborate tale." We can only assure him/her that our investigation and inquiry into the life and work of America's greatest poet is on-going.
By the way, by "creative writing skills," we assume that "Terry" meant "research skills."
"Jeremy" (if that is his real name) asked, "Is the no biography about Emmett Lee Dickinson?"
Yes, "Jeremy," as a matter of fact, there is. Click HERE -- and may we also say that Great American Poems ~ REPOEMED, the definitive work on Dickinson, makes the perfect gift for friends, family, teachers, poetry lovers, and any and all acquaintances.
By the way, when I received my most recent royalties check for the sales of Great American Poems ~ REPOEMED, not only was I able to take my wife out to dinner, but we were able to afford the Nachos Supreme.
"Susan" (if that is her real name) speculated that we have "WAAAAAAAAY too much time" on our hands!"
When it comes to America's greatest poet, Emmett Lee Dickinson (Emily Dickinson's third cousin, twice removed -- at her request) is there really such a thing as "too much time"?
On the contrary, we need more time -- much more time -- to spread the word on Emmett Lee Dickinson so that he will finally be recognized as more than the "Salieri" to Emily Dickinson's "Mozart."
Enjoy our site? Enlightened by our research? Enriched by our Featured Poems of the Week (HERE)? Drop us a line and let us know what you think. Maybe we'll feature your comment in a future plog post (poetry blog) about the accolades and unfounded complaints we receive!
