Junie B. Jones: Form vs. Content

I noticed that our conversation in class focused a lot on the form of the digital poem Agrippa rather than the content of it. We’ve had a lot of conversations like this lately where the form of the thing is more important that the content of it, even in the physical book of House of Leaves. I wonder if this is were literature is going. Have we told so many stories that the only way to make stories new again is to tell them through an interesting form that conveys the essence of the story? I’m unsure yet whether this focus on form is a good thing or a bad thing. I’m worried that is takes away from the content of the story which as a writer I love so much. However, the play with form could lead us to a future I can’t even imagine. I’m conflicted.
