Okay, all ye BA Lits out there, a simple question just to make sure I've not been shooting myself in the foot all these years.
When you write the title of a poem, where are you supposed to put the capital letters? Reading Revival, it seems they're not too sure either. Noel King has a poem "Flowers To An Old Lady" where every word begins with a capital. However, Richard Halperin's poem is "The Lord has set her in Safety," where the nouns only are capitalised.
I have always capitalised the first word only (unless it's a proper noun) as in "The ballad of a gambling man," but are many of my submissions ending up in the bin immediately because of this? (rather than later, because they're crap)
Is there a Supreme Court ruling on this anywhere?
