Poetry. E-mail Correspondence. "The DAY BOOK OF A VIRTUAL POET" provides a unique entrance into the ideas and practices-into the life, finally-of one of our great writers"-Burt Kimmelman. This unique book is a record of e-mail letters from Robert Creeley to high school students participating in an online honors poetry course. It explores the educational possibilities of a medium that has become second nature to people across the generations. Creeley: "All the tendentious proposals as to 'why write, ' in Pound's useful phrase, finally fade to the one point W.C. Williams made by saying, 'Why don't we tell them it's fun?' Not just the authority of endless revisions, not just the lists of publications or prizes won, not just the company of poets of public record - just fun. Fun. Fun."
