The Society Of Classical Poets Poetry Competition
The first SCP poet mentioned as a candidate for Poet Laureate was Leo Yankevich, who calls himself a Polish count and claims to live in a castle in Poland. Such things apparently mean no more to the Keystone Scops than the stopping power of real bullets would matter to the Keystone Kops. So according to Mac the “only good Injun” is one who bows down to the god and religion of his immensely superior white masters.
With the native Chinese and colonial Japanese both using poetry societies for their own purposes, these organizations had a lot of room for growth. In Taiwan Poetry Societies Lien Ya-tang says that there were a total of 66 such organizations in Taiwan in 1924. The figure had ballooned to 178 by 1936, according to the Taiwan history Taiwan Tungchi. Based on his own research, Liao Yi-chin reckons that the number was probably closer to 260. “Many educated Taiwanese back then grieved over the island being severed from China,” Liao Yi-chin says.
In part, because Dead Poets Society might well be the most enduring and beloved picture ever made about teaching the humanities. While many English professors dislike and distrust the film, there’s another large contingent, even among those who teach literature in high school and college, that loves it.

Mac is a lock to become the Poet Laureate of the KKK, unless Salemi beats him to it. “Obama described as a ‘tyrant’ in poem celebrating Trump inauguration”. This month in her ‘art of translation’ column, Adrienne K.H. Rose interviews A.E. The two discuss the word choices made by translators, the surprising relevance of Archaic poetry in the tumultuous present era, and the effects of living life in a foreign language. For us in the West, who grew up in school systems where teaching Darwinian evolution is mandated and teaching belief in a great and good Creator is considered scandalous, it is difficult to imagine what such a spiritual culture looks like. Shen Yun gives us an excursion into this delightfully charming and profoundly fascinating world of ancient China.
But under the pressures of this age, modern poetry changes quickly, getting fresh injections of blood that give it new vitality. “It’s like making ceramics. The China Pottery Arts Company can make gorgeous reproductions of classical blue and white porcelain, but this is different from creating modern ceramics,” Ko says by way of comparison. I have taken my family, including two small children, to see Shen Yun for the last few years. (You can read my poetry about it “I Love the Dance” and “Upon Seeing Shen Yun.”) But there is more to this story than just another individual review or a wonderful family experience.
