Modernism vs Classicism


This is a response to Kim Randell's article

What Kim Randell is calling "Classical Poetry" is an art form.

So is painting. And so is abstract painting. Art is a moving target. It is not possible to proscribe to others how they may create. For me, "rhyme" has it's place and it is not always at the end of lines. I do not have time to construct a sonnet or do crosswords. I listen to music and write when the urge takes me. Obviously I would have not done well in Shakespeare's day - in fact I suspect it would be a burning at the stake for being this illogical. Art is a moving target. The world changes every day. And so does

The new agenda is to post more good poetry. Contributors are free to post comments. Guests can post comments but they are moderated.

There are no limits or restrictions on style. We want people to contribute, to express their voices and make themselves heard. We have been asking for new contributors and have welcomed two new voices. Now we want to hear from more.

More comments! If you do not like a poem, do not complain to me, write a constructive criticism and post it as a comment.

Don't get personal! Your comments should never be insulting or you are really not getting the point. If you break this rule, your comments will not be posted.
