In a free verse poem do you need punctuation?

  • English -

    free verse does not mean don't use needed punctuation or capitalization. As I searched for examples of free verse, I found many that didn't have punctuation (which caused ideas and thoughts to run together) and didn't have capitalization, which distracts from the meaning.

  • English -

    yah that's how i was confused

  • English -

    I have seen free verse without punctuation, but I have to tell you it runs together and gets me confused and often lost. Most free verse poets use punctuation to break thoughts, and to separate ideas.
