Hopefully, post-apocalyptic splendor will be conducive to poets! Most of what we consider "good poetry" was written before the digital age, and even before the broadcasting age. Poetry would seem to require time for idleness and contemplation, and today's culture of busy-ness and distraction doesn't offer much of that.

There were poets long before there was paper, and there will be long after our modern society declines into post-apocalyptic splendor. Social networking is just gossip by the village well in disguise. It's all the same human graces and flaws with different window dressing. Does Captain Picard reading a sonnet sound any different from a book than from a kindle?
