Some people have suggested that poetry written in perfect meter has hypnotic effects which distracts readers from the meaning of the words. Is this true? I remember reading "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe and never noticed much variation in his meter. If meter is best when varied then maybe I need to start varying my meter. But I have always preferred to read and write verses that are in perfect meter. I never liked reading poetry that was not in perfect meter, nor could I get the rhythm of it. I apologize for complaining about advice in the past. If I don't like certain advice, I won't take it, but I won't argue or complain about it anymore. I will accept and consider it.
