Paris Review Hosts Couplet Contest

The Paris Review will be giving away two tickets to Tom Stoppard‘s Broadway play “Arcadia.” To win, write a poetic couplet in response to the question, “Does Carnal Embrace Addle the Brain?”

Here are more details about the contest: “Keep your lines to a couplet, but in true Stoppardian fashion, let your imagination run wild: anything from the impending Kardashian nuptials to Kate Wood’s philosophy to the (alleged) crimes of DSK is fair game. Share yours in comments below.”

So far, more than 70 couplets  have been submitted. A winner will be picked today, so write quickly!
