I dwelt in possibility – referral

This link will take you to an interesting video of a seminar discussion on the language of ‘I dwelt in possibility’.  It is part of the University of Pennsylvania U.S. Modern Poetry course; you can enrol on this for free.

I dwell in Possibility – (466)
I dwell in Possibility –
A fairer House than Prose –
More numerous of Windows –
Superior – for Doors –
Of Chambers as the Cedars –
Impregnable of eye –
And for an everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the Sky –
Of Visitors – the fairest –
For Occupation – This –
The spreading wide my narrow Hands
To gather Paradise –
