Posted by Ozymandias on Tuesday, July 29, 2014 (02:50:37)

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 Calling all opinionated poets
Posted by Ozymandias on Monday, July 28, 2014 (23:01:30)

Last year, when we asked readers to submit opinion poetry, we were overwhelmed. More than 1,500 poets answered the call, many with multiple entries. The poems we received dealt with every issue of the day, including the war on terror, the economy, the nanny state, student debt and the inability of so many politicians to keep their pants zipped. After reading more than 5,000 poems, we were exhausted. But we were so happy with the end result that we've decided to do it all over again.Link!

News in Poetry Pashtun poets struggle to hold on to craft
Posted by Ozymandias on Monday, July 28, 2014 (23:00:04)

BANNU: For more than five centuries, poets in remote northwestern Pakistan have recited verses about the area’s mountainous scenery, their tribal culture and love. That all changed as Islamist militants tightened their hold on Pakistan’s tribal regions after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The Taliban and its allies quickly crushed the poets’ words and spirits. They were warned not to write phrases that referred to women or serenity and instead ordered to compose jihadist messages of war, brutality and conformity. Link!
