Discourse in the Poetry Community
Interview with Gabriel Arnoldo-Palacios :
"Structure that can stand even with gaps and ellipses"
"impulse to make language artificially exciting for publishers" : :
"discipline and INDUSTRY is tolerant of unique expression"
"live performance of poetry is vital"
"readings/performance and publication...which might include podcasts"
"So many of us write to save each other’s lives and our own."
"Toward an Open Source Poetic..."
Poetry as an art is reliant on people writing piece based on or inspired by other pieces.
Choice to share writing is voluntary, but inspiration can be intentional or unintentional which makes regulation of ideas difficult
Writing is being industrialized, not because of the need to regulate creativity, but as a way to regulate knowledge.
People write in order to be published and receive capital and this is hurting the community.
Innovation in form can only take place when poetry is shared wildly and without fear of being seen as stolen when written with another piece in mind.
Innovation in form is being slowed because of lack of access to new poetry or ability to draw inspiration without fear of "copyright"
Shift between physical writing (books) to digital writing (e-books, blogs) as ways to share writing.
Poetry is a form of rhetoric with its own benefit to understanding subject being written about
Need to navigate the poetic form instead of only narratives or prose in order to understand the English subject
Focus in community is on what is being said, not how it is being said
Modern poetry is becoming an argument over content versus form, when both are important aspects of the writing
"Not Some Shrink-Wrapped..."
Use of imagery and aesthetics is key to to creating meaning in a subject and further connection of resonation
Two subjects of poetry: the creator and the reader, and both collaborate on a work in one form or another (actual creation versus interpretation)
Poetry's application of emotion through convention allows for deeper understanding of subjects across all disciplines
Poetry isn't limited just to the English community, it is a form of rhetoric
Poetic conventions defy sequential order of ideas common for academic writing, themes can be explored throughout poem with equal importance
