Abstract

“Time & Space” is a manuscript of lyric poetry. It is the opposite of experimental poetry. It is a book of love poems. It uses rhyme and other traditional poetic devices. The poems are written in tercets, a form which dates back to the 14th c. and were introduced into the English language by the poet Thomas Wyatt. Between each tercet there is an asterisk. The poems are sincere. The poet was inspired to write them. The form is ecstatic. They are “new” in the Poundian sense.
