Fair enough. That's an interesting counter-take. We're each growing in terms of life experience, yes, though I prefer to isolate the individual in time, according to artistic project, as opposed to evaluating every project as part of a cumulative repertoire.

Perfection must contain imperfections.

I never claimed: "all artists do do". I merely contributed my own perspective of artistry.

In reply to:

Not just respect in terms of poetic appreciation. I've been addressed with more civility than I was at the beginning of the thread. I don't expect much from yourself, mind, given your probable psychological grudge.


No, most people have just grown tired of mocking you, since you're not even worth mocking.

Ans speaking psychology, yours seems to contain some insecurity combined with self-glorification. You initially posted your poems in the wrong forum, to get more people to read them, and you pisted them on separate threads, again to get more people to read them. Also, you are telling us you did not post your poems here to get critique on them. Thus we can only conclude you posted them because you wanted us to read them, and congratulate you on what a brilliant poet you are, giving satisfaction to your vain ego.

In reply to:

I never claimed: "all artists do do". I merely contributed my own perspective of artistry.


To quote yourself above in this thread: "A true artist is always striving to equal his/her last piece; not surpass it." Admittedly you did not say all artist do, period. You said all true artists do.

Also, if perfection contain imperfections, then it is not, to the strict definition of the word, perfect. In my opinion the whole concept of perfection is moot, because it's unarchievable.

In reply to:

I prefer to isolate the individual in time, according to artistic project, as opposed to evaluating every project as part of a cumulative repertoire.


You contradict yourself. If a true artist (as you seem to consider yourself) always strives to equal his last piece as you said, then he is evaluating his art as a part of cumulative repertoire.

How could you possibly ascertain that, given you're only one of those people?

Critique incorporates both positive and negative criticism.

We exhibit opposing perspectives on the concept of: "perfection", then.

The statement you quoted was initially posted in response to a different question altogether, and inherent meaning neither applies to, nor contradicts, the current subject of discussion.

No, you're just taking the wrong word for your meaning. "Perfection," by its definition, harbors no imperfections.

You can reject perfection as an ultimate goal, but you cannot render it senseless by playing the whole perfect-imperfect game.

Maybe if I write this now, while drunk, you'll all understand.

You should learn to use the quote function my dear, I haven't got a clue to what you're really replying to with this line.

In reply to:

I never claimed the opposite. I simply presumed that an arist in such high position as youself, would understand this without saying.

That is bullshit and you know it yourself.

And agreed on everything Starlite said.

In reply to:

I'm aware of that, though I don't know how to type one. Maybe I should've written: "(sic)" to divert the wrath of pedants such as yourself.



Although, since apparently "perfection contains imperfections", I'd have to say your spelling was perfect.
