Pulitzer Remix Day Twenty-One

1970-The-Collected-Stories-of-Jean-Stafford-Featured

Consternation was found on pages 242-243 of the story The Mountain Day. In scanning the pages a particular line caught my attention because it was so very contrary to the flow of the rest of the text on these particular two pages. I knew I wanted to use that line in a literal sense though it referred to a brief, short fall of rain.

Pulitzer Remix Day Eighteen

From the story The Healthiest Girl in Town, pages 212-213, the poem entitled The Cure was found. For this poem, the ending was a quandary. You will see the final selection when your read The Cure. The alternate ending would have added this line: “I have to get things ready.” Read the poem as written, then read it adding this line to the end. Which do you prefer?

Pulitzer Remix Day Sixteen

1970-The-Collected-Stories-of-Jean-Stafford-Featured

The story The Interior Castle was mined for today’s found poem, entitled Betrayal, from pages 190-191.

For this poem, I wanted to use the line, “I’ll order some more coffee for you.” In early drafts, I thought to begin the poem with the line. Working with the text brought a different emplacement.
