Re: the new New Yorker poetry bot:

“The new technology associated with the bot may seem to be at odds with how poetry has traditionally been delivered,” Muldoon told The Huffington Post via email. “In fact, it’s absolutely consistent with how poetry has always come to us in the world — unpredictably, randomly, taking us unawares.”

“At a time when writers and poets are questioning the role of art in politics — while yet finding greater urgency behind the art they create — one new anthology seeks to reinforce poetry’s role in the resistance. That anthology is Resist Much Obey Little: Inaugural Poems to the Resistance, published March 3 by Spuyten Duyvil; and, at a whopping 740 pages, this collection will keep you in protest poetry for awhile. If the first 50-some days of Trump’s presidency are any indication, you’re going to need it.”
