The Bubble Magazine has published a collection of poetry titles from the past 100 years, which have been given a unique new context by the rise of the Internet.
The series of books is a collaboration between poet and literary historian Jane Bierman, and her new collection of literary poetry, which is titled “Poetry from the Web.”
“There’s been a lot of work going on on the Internet in the past century, but no one has written about what’s going on online today,” Biermann told The Next Word.
“The work of the poets who are coming online is going to be more important than the work of anybody else.”
Bierman’s collection of poems was originally created in the 1990s as a collaborative effort between her own group of poets, and a group of writers from the English-language literary magazine, the Lancer Magazine.
“They were looking at all the poems that had come out in the same period and they were finding them to be really boring,” Biersman said.
“It’s very rare for any single writer to come out with a book that is really a collection.
It was just something that was written in the form of a poem and it was written with an eye towards the public and also towards the history of the poet.”
The collection is a collection that reflects both the poetry of the 19th and 20th centuries, and the history and literature of poetry itself, Biermans said.
The poems are all written in a style that is distinctly modern and contemporary, she said, and include poems that were written in 2009 or 2010.
Biermann said she was particularly drawn to a poem by the Irish poet, and poet laureate, James McEwan called The Big Sleep in the 20th century, which describes the experience of being on a long journey by car, in the middle of a snowstorm, in a dark, cold and snowy country.
“I’m not saying that it’s poetic, it’s not,” Biestman said, “but it’s a poetic experience and it’s an experience of what it’s like to be in the dark, the cold and the snow.”
Biersman told TheNextWord that she wanted the collection to be a celebration of the history, and literature, of the poems, and that she was hoping the poems would be shared and appreciated by a broader public.
“We want it to be an antidote to the fact that poetry is just not a very large and successful thing, and people are not reading poems and they’re not listening to poetry, so I think it’s really important to have this anthology that is just really about poetry and history, that celebrates poetry and literature in a way that is both accessible to the public, but also accessible to a broader audience,” she said.
Biersmann said that while there is a lot that is still happening online in the arts, she thinks there is still much that needs to be done to bring poetry back to a place of respect and community.
“There is a big difference between writing poems and writing music, and when you’re writing music it’s just like a really big symphony,” she explained.
“But when you are writing poetry it’s so small, so small that it can be almost invisible.”
Biestman, who was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, has written for the BBC, the New York Times, The Economist, The Independent, and The New Yorker, and was a contributing editor for the National Book Foundation and the British Library’s poetry prize, which she won in 2016.
She is currently working on a book about the Irish language.
