i just read this short essay by ks based poet/scholar jonathan mayhew in defense of the plain style. i agree with mayhew. i think his focus is on critical writing but i think mayhew's agurment extends to poetry. i think, or i try, to write in a plain style. simplicity of language is important to me. but clarity, simplicity even, does not mean simple. say it plain does not un-complicate the world. indeed, simplicity can with great facility explore this crazy world we call home thru language that, hopefully all, or most, of us can understand.
