Hi, read this with interest. I find the whole line break issue a huge challenge. Wondering if you know where I can get a copy of this Levertov essay? The Yale link seems to be broken and have googled like a maniac ( finding some stuff of interest on the way) however frustrated it doesn’t seem to be accessible.


Good question. There are two places you can find the essay: on JSTOR if you have access (https://www.jstor.org/stable/25303862) or you can find the essay in a used copy of the book "Claims for Poetry" edited by Donald Hall.
