Poetry and Narrative: An Excerpt from Microtexts, Martin Langford , single work criticism
Langford explores the nature of narrative, declaring it 'the means by which the ego becomes visible'. He contrasts narrative and poetry. Poetry, he says, 'occurs in the space between narratives. [...] Poems are written in the space in which free will is impossible: one step back from the event. Langford concludes, 'Narrative asks, How shall this conflict end justly? Poetry asks, After justice, what then?'
