Question for The Skeptic (and anyone else who would care to chime in): What is the deal with Ammons? I've never really been able to figure out why he's been awarded the status of great poet; his work's always struck me as kind of dull--short lines but without a real metrical charge, a kind of self-deflating metaphysics. But I'd be interested to hear a strong defense of him.
