Poetics (1): Ramage, coined by Robert Bly

Background ...

I was interested to read about Robert Bly's notion of what he has named the Ramage. This feature of his poetry concerns the musicality of sound produced by the 'union of a consonant and a vowel' (e.g. an or er) within his eight-line stanzas.

  • example on the web e.g. the third of Four Ramages by Robert Bly
