Rhyme As Metaphor - Holding Christopher Ricks At Bay

Dead Beat finally got around to Dylan's Vision of Sin by Christopher Ricks.

Rick's has a lot to say and is not afraid to say it, but all you poets out there listen to this:

"Rhyme like any metaphor is itself a threesome, not a crowd: tenor, vehicle and the union of the two that constitutes the third thing, metaphor."

Rhyme as metaphor?

You knew this didn't you? You just hadn't been thinking about it.

Well think about it now, or I'll set Christopher Ricks upon you. Rarr!
