That’s Not Funny

Moby Lives is on vacation for August, but there will be guest columns for those who can not live without something new.

This week, Scott Bradfield has a very funny post on why poetry is not funny. At all. Zilch.

Or take Emily Dickinson. What’s so funny about Emily Dickinson? Buzzing flies and death stopping in a hansom cab or whatever, let’s face it, the girl needed a man. I know that’s not a very funny thing to say since, well, 1966 or something, but Emily Dickinson needed a man, and she definitely needed to get out of that house.
