Don't let it discourage. Application...

Sorry kev, I wasn't clear in what I said. When I said "longer" I was referring to the last line rather than the entire poem. Also, I was wrong on a couple of points - I do think the culmination of...

Amar bestirred in embers. Surprise was Auden's - Amar was never angry. Was never anything.

For me a good plot doesn't feel like a plot at all. A plot is a plan, after all, and real life doesn't usually unfold according to plans. Little details that are random or unrelated to...
