True... but a little more technical knowledge wouldn't hurt me Smile
I don't think it hurts anyone but i do think commenting can be easier without it.  some of the best poems I have read on this site had enough technical issues to bog down the critique forever.  Thing is, technical issues can be fixed with a few editing passes - a dull poem really can't.
I agree, and for me writing poetry is like playing music: I want to know why things are what they are, so I do spend plenty of time (not necessarily liking all of it, but my curiosity keeps things interesting) on fundamentals/technical things. Then, once I have grasped that understanding and practiced it I don't have to think about it when I'm creating something in the moment. Oh isn't spontaneous art just beautiful? *spins around throws hands up in the air*
Free verse poetry and jazz are like brother and sister.
