I'm really fucking smart. As in, I got ranked first in the entrance exam at the école normale supérieur in maths, by far the strongest in France and the world, which has as many fields medals as the entire US, before two guys that got medals at the maths olympiads and I didn't even work that much nor do i like maths that much; I prefer poetry. As in, it's been several months that I'm in the best scientific and literary institution in France with about a hundred ancient greek speakers and the best school of maths in the world and I've met about 3 guys at my level, including one teacher. Will this help me to become poet?

Peut-être serait-il temps pour toi d'arrêter de te targuer sur 4chan à propos de cette soi-disant intelligence (comme si la chose devait ou pouvait insuffler à ton souffle poétique l'unicité, la puissance nécessaires) et commencer à aller poncer ces sonnets. Seule te distinguera ta sensibilité émotionnelle et ta méthode. Allez, maintenant - au travail, mon vieux.

Mauvais départ. Que dirais-tu d'en composer ? Il faudra faire comme tout le monde : imiter ces deux ou trois poètes à qui, personnellement, tu reconnais l'autorité, le titre de Maître. La première chose à faire - et je comprends ce que cette remarque peut avoir de banal, mais je te prie de croire que c'est le contraire -, est de trouver ton propre souffle.

Writing is a discipline that can be learned as much as any to which intelligence can be applied. "Natural ability" whatever it is, is nothing to worry about before beginning and maybe after, nor is a distance between one's area and poetry. Especially now that much of the best writing draws on expertise in other disciplines, the literary institutions degraded and the old modes of literature insufficient to capture the modern world or human. We're seeing fine work from poet neuroscientists.

No Shakespeare had only a basic education. And he is superior to most other poets in English, including poets that are very well educated like T.S. Eliot, who has a doctorate from Oxford. A genius is born. School is simply a waste of time if you're self-motivated. Otherwise it's simply a means to an end, namely a stable income.

>> No.10317934

Writing long sentences is an art form in English. Most people fuck it up and sounds really shitty so we yell at them to use shorter sentences. Also, for variety, gotta have shorter, punchy sentences as well.
