Poetry fishbowl!


"Today's theme is 'modern myths.' I'll be soliciting ideas for heroic figures, mythologists, archetypes, iconic objects, tools and weapons, famous jewels, symbolic locations, places that give rise to their own mythology, mythic plotlines, events that turn into stories, concepts that grow so huge they become a significant part of the culture, modern ideas not really covered by historic myths, and poetic forms in particular. But anything is welcome, really. If you manage to recommend a form that I don't recognize, I will probably pounce on it and ask you for its rules. I do have the first edition of Lewis Turco's The Book of Forms which covers most common and many obscure forms."
