ages ago someone asked me about poetic prose, and i thought about it until i completely forgot to answer. seeing as i’ve been spending the past two days on basically nothing but this elizabeth smart essay, i thought now would be a good time to answer that. here are some writers of prose-poems or incredibly poetic prose (here are some writers who are masters of the sound and form of words, essentially) and their works that i love:
- elizabeth smart - by grand central station i sat down and wept
- oscar wilde - the picture of dorian gray, and his gorgeous long letter to bosie, de profundis
- thomas de quincey - suspiria de profundis and ‘the english mail-coach’
- walter pater - the renaissance, and marius the epicurean
- roland barthes - a lover’s discourse: fragments, and mourning diary
- anne carson - eros the bittersweet, autobiography of red, grief lessons, and nox
- vladimir nabokov - pale fire and, really, lolita
- charles baudelaire - paris spleen
- arthur rimbaud - une saison en enfer and illuminations
- jean genet - our lady of the flowers

urban fantasy series - city magic
for anyone who loves them, there’s a clear but indescribable heartbeat to a big city, somewhere between the fast paced footfalls and blaring car horns.
the establishment won’t admit they exist but there’s a growing second pulse, power drawn from the modern-day lay-lines of ring roads and metro lines, searching spells tied into the cctv, sigils wrapped up in graffiti patterns.

American wizards, unlike British wizards, live closer to their Muggle counterparts and make a stronger effort to blend in with existing Muggle culture. This results in a particular blend of wizarding and Muggle styles that leaves American wizards and witches extremely conspicuous when they travel in more traditional nations like Britain.
