My prompt is:
we have discussed in class multiple times on what it means for a piece to be a poem (or even literature as a more general term). Since we are dealing with e-poetry generators this time, do you consider Montfort’s “Taroko Gorge” a poem? what about the works that his friends had produced using the same coding? If you do consider these to be poetry, explain and expound on why the medium affects the (presumably nonsensical) content. If you do not consider these to be poetry, what is necessary for them to become poetry, keeping in mind the restrictions of the Python coding?
