Logic in Verse
D. G. Myers has a couple of posts up about poetic syllogism. The previous link is to the second of these, but go to the main blog and read down--you'll enjoy the subsequent posts as well. Contribute to the discussion, if you're of a mind to--we can all learn as we talk. I'm grateful people are willing to post serious and interesting pieces about literature. Even if the premise is one that I find difficult to fathom, it is worth hearing it spelled out and properly argued and Mr. Myers always does so with humor and graciousness.
