    Default It is interesting

    Hi,
    Can I start a sentence like this?

    1 It is interesting that the poet uses ( and so on)
    2 or should I say "It is interesting the fact that the poet .....

    And is it possible to say:
    3 The poet wants that the readers imagine her beloved
    4 or should I say " the poet wants that the readers could imagine her beloved
    5 or the poet wants the readers to imagine her beloved
    6. or the poet wants the readrers to imagine what her beloved looks like.

    7. The cherries represent the woman s mouth which none will have until she decides to give herself.
    8. Can I substitute have with enjoy?
    Please tell me which one is incorrect and why.
    Bye Rip.

    Default Re: It is interesting

    1 It is interesting that the poet uses ( and so on) Yes
    2 or should I say "It is interesting the fact that the poet ..... You can, but I prefer number 1- it's shorter and more to the point

    And is it possible to say:
    3 The poet wants that the readers imagine her beloved No- wants the readers to imagine


    7. The cherries represent the woman's mouth which none will have until she decides to give herself.
    8. Can I substitute have with enjoy?

    I'd use enjoy rather than have- you can have a person (have sex), but mouths don't go with have, so enjoy fits with both the mouth and the cherries.
