To Converse With the Greats

“Poetry is when an emotion has found it’s thought and the thought has found words.” -Robert Frost

As I read the poem “To Converse With the Greats” by Vera Pavlova, I first began to notice it’s unique syntax and how the poem is somewhat incomplete. It ends without a proper ending, making it just a long sentence fragment. This somewhat frustrates me since the poet leaves it as if it was incomplete, allowing readers to interpret it all differently. I don’t really understand the true meaning behind the poem but I am able to see the poet’s purpose in her writing and her poetry. Even though it may be simple and short, it can still have a lot of meaning behind it.
