News in Poetry The August Haiku
Posted by fogglethorpe on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 (05:04:25)

The traditional haiku may make an evocative reference to a season. With this in mind, and on the conviction that constraints are paradoxically liberating, I would add two more rules as suitable to this august Asian form: your haiku must include the word “August” and you are not allowed to use the words “I,” “me,” “my,” or “mine.”

News in Poetry 'And You May Contribute a Verse': Robin Williams' Poignant Apple Ad
Posted by Ozymandias on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 (03:45:30)

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry, because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering — these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love — these are what we stay alive for.Link!

News in Poetry Without World War I, what would literature look like today?
Posted by Ozymandias on Tuesday, July 29, 2014 (02:49:34)

The war poets are routinely taught in schools. And the memoirs, novels, paintings, films and pieces of music produced in that period haven’t just produced our cultural memory of the war. They’ve made our culture virtually unimaginable without it. But it isn’t just these direct cultural products that I’m talking about. What might literature have looked like if it hadn’t been shaken by war?Link!

News in Poetry Why literature written out of the First World War is some of the last century's
Posted by Ozymandias on Saturday, July 19, 2014 (00:04:52)

I do not rush to read books about war; in fact, I avoid them. But, strangely, some of my favourite novels, memoirs and poems were inspired by a conflict that claimed the youth of a generation and gave birth to a bitterly disillusioned modern world. Link!
