Node poetry is drawing its inspiration from synthetic and visual poetry

from Michael Douma to "Tusar N. Mohapatra" date 22 Apr 2009 21:59 subject New poetry exhibit, of interest for Savitri Era
Dear Tusar,

I've been browsing poetry blogs recently, and thought perhaps you and Savitri Era readers might like a project I've been working on to inspire visitors to start reading and writing new forms. It's called "Poetry through the Ages" (PTTA) --

One of the most exciting aspects of the exhibit is that it highlights a new form, called node poetry. Drawing its inspiration from synthetic and visual poetry, the form is found exclusively online, and enables readers to take the poet's lines and construct the poem as they explore it. Here's a page with sample node poems:

For people who think non-linearly, here's a nodemap of the entire site:

If you get a chance to visit PTTA, please let me know what you think. My colleagues and I are keen for ideas to keep the exhibit engaging, interesting, easy to use -- and solidly accurate. Thanks!

Dear Tusar

Many thanks for bringing this to my attention. Fascinating stuff. Unfortunately the Aurobindonian poetry does not get any mention in these compilations. One of the problems is how to project it. Of course there is no question of imposition of any kind, but making oneself open to it is certainly desirable, to say the least.
