|Title:||The Line of Wit: First Thoughts on a Defence||Contributor(s):||Sharkey, Michael Francis (author)||Publication Date:||2003||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2478||Abstract:||I'm attracted to poetry that realises the near-indefinable quality of wit. I'm also aware that the display of wit for its own sake is a dead end for poets. A mind alert to punning possibilities and opportunities for one liners does not guarantee anything more memorable than a gag and a reputation for producing non-serious work. Some forms of wit are tiresome, and some may advertently or otherwise alienate readers: caustic and satiric wit offends those who are its victims.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Blue Dog: Australian Poetry, 2(4), p. 76-79||Publisher:||Poetry Australia Foundation||Place of Publication:||Wollongong, Australia||ISSN:||1446-876X||Field of Research (FOR):||200502 Australian Literature (excl Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Literature)||Other Links:||http://paf.scriptmania.com/catalog.html
