I have written about the need for an attractant in sophisticated literature, such as poetry. Sometimes I have called it a “throughput line”. I realize that there have been great narrative poems which have incorporated story-form and some of the key elements of an attractant.
But still, when you analyze these works, they often fail to intensify the dramatic element to an extent that draws you forward in a compelling way. The language often has priority over the line (the “throughput line”).
I am searching for that approach which incorporates the beauty of carefully chosen words, of subtle lyricism, and of evocative contrasts. Such a form would enable a unique means of expression. Indeed, this expression would be powerful especially because of its widespread appeal.
