Subject:     Re: Shall I Die Again?


It’s been a while since I read “Shall I Die” or the arguments about it, but I remember that it always struck me as seeming more like a song lyric than a ‘poem’ proper—something along the lines of ‘On a day, alack the day’ from Love’s Labour’s Lost.  Is Gerald Downs making this implicit suggestion by larding his post with popular music snatches?
