I really enjoyed this poem. The mental imagery is apt and reminds me of Rodin's 'The Thinker' which I've seen a few times. It was fun of you to bring a human story to this and not solely focus on th sculpture. Well done.
This is cool. The imagery you painted was wonderful as I observed within the scenery of artwork and creation. A snicker did rise to the lips as the adventure unfolded and as such has made my day. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent with the world.
This was some great writing to read here. I so rarely read poetry about Rodin's Thinker Statue and it was great how you have a little narrative going on and end with the possibility of the thinker statue being about rejection. I love the humour and irony in your poem and look forward to reading the rest of your poetry.
A tremendous image packed poem that tells its own little story as well as leaving us with the amusing thought of a new 'Thinker' Slick word usage, modern, real and very much to the point. Great stuff ~Sean
Hello Marillion, Well done "A Study In Rodin" was a very clever and
well written poem I thought it had a measure of tongue in cheek
I have read so many poems of different topic I would never even think about writing about the thinker as you have done my gain so thank you very much for a fab read best of luck
Maybe Rodin had experienced similar rejection and that was his inspiration for " The Thinker" :-) Think about it, do deep thinkers usually have a body like "The Thinker?"
Maybe the Thinker was just some egotistical guy with a great body who couldn't believe he got rejected, and sat down to puzzle over it. Just like the poet, maybe.
Love the humor in this, as well as the great poetry.
This is a simple and clear poem. The thoughts though not invocative associates and engages the reader, without unnecessary frills. I would prefer to call it a verse. An effective verse, though inchoate in the execution of its skills.
