Forgotten Poets


Poetry and I have a complicated relationship.

I appreciate it, occasionally struggle with writing it, and often am frustrated by it.

But what I do love about it, is the fact that I regularly discover someone or something new – completely by chance!

Today’s #PoemoftheWeek column for Quadrapheme showcases one such writer.

I’m a big fan of the shorter poetic form, and so was surprised to discover that the cinquain was developed last century by Adelaide Crapsey.

So you’ll find a whole piece over on Quadrapheme where I feel out about the cinquain’s origins, and analyse one specific poem that references an old balllad.
