Eva Wiseman’s investigation into spoetry in the Guardian yesterday left me a little scared. The theory is that spam authors can trick anti-spam filters by using capricious sentences that form a poetic life of their own. In her piece, Wiseman asks professor of English and history, Paul Edwards, to critique the poems as serious pieces.
Edwards’ analysis of an advert for discount rolexes: “With its disrupted phrases and clauses, the poem mirrors the channelling of the old stable ego into flows that are continuously redirected, interrupted and abandoned.” Should we be afraid of the next generation of poets?
