  1. I saw this subject on another board and found it fascinating. People who lose their hearing in later life would presumably retain their, dare I say it, ear for poetry, but do the profoundly deaf (from birth/childhood) write and experience poetry differently from people who aren't deaf? I mean, one of the most used terms is voice. An illustration in ASL (American Sign Language) is this poem by Carl Schroeder, White Flowers Blooming <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0F32n-OYM14"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0F32n-OYM14" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="344"></embed></object> that might perhaps "translate" as [sPOIL](I imagine?) Flowers blooming White, expanding Beautiful white blooming flowers (and I am?) happy [/sPOIL] In spoilers in case you want to "read" it yourself and try to write the words. The URL is here if my fancy way of embedding a Youtube video doesn't work http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0F32n-OYM14 Interesting article in Poetry Magazine about the subject.
  2. I would like to buy a book covering best English and American poetry from the 17th through 19th centuries. Can anybody recommend a good compilation?
