Jody Gomez Posted April 9, 2006 Share Posted April 9, 2006 I thought there are many here who would appreciate the humor in this poem. By the way, I'm reading Ciardi now, so expect more from this wondeful poet.The Fantasy EchoMiss Merely asked me about "the fantasy echo"-was she getting it in her poems. "The What?" I said."The fantasy echo," she said. "What Doctor Tullkeeps talking about in Post-Rom. Lit." "What is it?"-"It's sort of, well, how everything in a poemchimes back to everything else. In "Bud," for instance-no, this one-'flair and fade' is supposed to echo'fair and frayed' in line one. Have I got it?"I saw Joe Tull at lunch. "I'm getting pingson your 'fantasy echo'" I said, "what the Hell is it?""Fantasy echo?-do you mean fin de siecle?"When I saw her on Wednesday I told her, yes, she had it.
