Collected Virtual News: Poetry Pages

Our Collected Virtual News, CVN, brings you Poetry

This is our CVN Poetry and literature index page. We will use this page to link to other pages, sites, and who knows what all we will bring you in the future.

Paris is a classic literary location for writers. It is certainly only one center of poetic activity. There are currently and have been many others over the years. Keep watching we might even write up some of those stories for this section. Our introduction here will no doubt change and evolve over time. For our initial introduction today, it is good enough.

Poetry should be accessible to all. Some isn't, Some is. Poetry and music speak to the soul, the spirit, to our inner selves. Poetry elicits emotion. Well done, poetry conveys what the poet intends to offer to the reader or listener and then, goes on beyond that to draw more from the reader/listener. Great poetry involves the author and the reader or listener in an honest intellectual and emotional journey. There is a great deal involved in our communication with both poetry and individual poets.

Bars have often been part of the literary scene, but they are far from being the only location, or scene to create literature. Writing has been an individual activity for most of its history. The stories of drunk artists, writers, musicians, painters, etc. are legendary. This could be another wonderful story link for these pages. We introduce our poetry and literature scene with a series of links that offer much more information. We hope you will have as much fun as we do exploring, reflecting, and learning from the links below:
