Essay. Tod Thilleman's BLANK VERSE is a Polemic addressing contemporary expressionist/activist writing. The central tenet of this strange, yet apropos, appraisal of American Poetry shifts away from lexical attributes of structure and places emphasis on the necessary difficulty of a visionary tradition. Without the quantitative poetry suffers and becomes not only ignored, but what is more dangerous, completely embedded in the Culture (from BLANK VERSE).
