Tim Hulsey replied to my post about Poetry Daily’s Poet's Pick for National Poetry Month and suggested that copyright laws might have influenced the selection of poems, and he was right. A. E. Stallings, one of the moderators at Eratosphere and a Poetry Picker, told me that the poems must be in the public domain, printed before 1929. But that doesn’t explain everything.
By 1929 Eliot had published “Prufrock” and “The Waste Land”; Williams had published several volumes of poetry, including Spring and All; Pound's Personae was published in 1926. Yet for 3 years no one has picked a poem of theirs, the founders of the dominant forms in 20th century American poetry.
BTW, Eratosphere has some interesting discussions right now on slant rhyme here and two of Robert Mezey's sonnet here and here. There's also a thread on sites friendly to formal poetry.
And A. E. Stallings had two fine poems yesterday at the Poetry Daily website. The poems originally appeared in The New Criterion
