Spoken word poetry counts as Literature?
Spoken word poetry counts as Literature.
What are some of your anon's favorite writers who speak?
I can’t bear these accounts I read in the Times and elsewhere of these poetry slams, in which various young men and women in various late-spots are declaiming rant and nonsense at each other. The whole thing is judged by an applause meter which is actually not there, but might as well be. This isn’t even silly; it is the death of art.
It takes better poetry to write a play and the people speaking are actually trained actors. Well met, anon.
