    re: Browning - yes, I see.

    A Picture... tried to find an analysis, no joy. Put it under the romanticist's "Browning" lens and got a little muddled; hence it must be an ekphrastic as the title suggests (a picture) or a snapshot in the poets mind - S4 prolly best suited for evidence. Enjoyed

    re "A Picture":
    You are right.There is movement in that scene. A picture would have to be more estactic.

    Thanks for the helpful analysis of the Ulisses poem, tailor!

    Interesting blog. The poem itself is sharp. The analysis again is very helpful, don't know if I would have been able to understand the poem without it.

    Loved the song and the old style singers, Going to listen to the other songs too.

    Rather drastic poem, but a legitimate Z poem.
