Sympathy vs Pity and Dustin in the Middle!

Over at Steve Fellner’s blog, Pansy Poetics, there is discussion on sympathy vs pity. I’ve put in my two cents, and I’m really interested as to what you think.

The blog post that started it all: Self-Pity Can Be a Good Thing!: The Poems of James Schuyler (Part One)

The follow-up blog post: On Poetry, Self-Pity, and Sympathy: In Response to Dustin Brookshire’s Comment on My Last Post
