Tendencies in Modern American Poetry, by Amy Lowell | BiblioLife

Tendencies in Modern American Poetry, by Amy Lowell | BiblioLife | Human Writes | Scoop.it

As the prominent Imagist poet Amy Lowell observes in the preface to her 1917 work, the “new movement” then transforming American poetry was “evidence of the rise of a native school,” certainly an exciting development in American literary history. Despite their stylistic differences, early twentieth-century poets like Robert Frost, Carl Sandburg, and John Gould Fletcher all represented fresh new directions in American poetry and a break from the outlook of the Victorian era. In Tendencies in Modern American Poetry, Lowell examines the lives and works of some key figures in the new movement, providing an especially illuminating biography and analysis of the work of Robert Frost.

allAfrica.com: Zimbabwe: The Death of Creative Writing?

allAfrica.com: Zimbabwe: The Death of Creative Writing? | Human Writes | Scoop.it
The death of creative writing might sound too harsh, but the breach of copyright or intellectual property rights has reached alarming levels, and it is time drastic measures are taken.

When music artistes and artists in other genres have been lamenting the level of piracy of their works, their cries seemed to have fuelled the problem.

It went viral, and the result is that the music and/or movies most people listen to and/or watch on their DVDs and/or computers is all pirated, and at the end of it all, the artistes are the biggest losers.

Melville House Books » St. Patrick of Armagh, deliver me from writing | Human Writes | Scoop.it

“The history of bookmaking hasn’t been without its challenges, but never was its craft as painstaking as during the era of illuminated manuscripts,” says Maria Popova. Well, try laying out an ebook that has art in it. But Popova makes a good case in a commentary for Brainpickings.org, citing a recent Lapham’s Quarterly article (not available online) that lists complaints written by monks found scribbled in the margins of those medieval illuminated manuscripts.
