Synopsis: Poetry. E-mail Correspondence. "The DAY BOOK OF A VIRTUAL POET" provides a unique entrance into the ideas and practices-into the life, finally-of one of our great writers"-Burt Kimmelman. This unique book is a record of e-mail letters from Robert Creeley to high school students participating in an online honors poetry course. It explores the educational possibilities of a medium that has become second nature to people across the generations. Creeley: "All the tendentious proposals as to 'why write,' in Pound's useful phrase, finally fade to the one point W.C. Williams made by saying, 'Why don't we tell them it's fun?' Not just the authority of endless revisions, not just the lists of publications or prizes won, not just the company of poets of public record - just fun. Fun. Fun."

About the Author: Robert Creeley was born in Arlington, Massachusetts. A year with the American Field Service in India and Burma (1944/5) interrupted his time at Harvard; on his return he married, left Harvard without graduating, and, in 1948, went to New Hampshire to try subsistence farming. His attempt two years later to launch his own magazine failed, but prompted a long correspondence with Charles Olson and provided material for Cid Corman's journal, Origin. In search of a cheaper way of life, the Creeleys moved in 1951 to France and the following year to Mallorca (the setting for Creeley's only novel, The Island, 1963), where they stayed until their divorce in 1955. There they set up the Divers Press and printed books by Creeley himself (including The Gold Diggers, 1954; eleven stories), Robert Duncan, Olson, and others. At Olson's invitation Creeley taught at Black Mountain College (spring 1954 and autumn 1955) and founded and edited the Black Mountain Review (1954-7). His first three books of poetry, Le Fou (1952), The Kind of Act of (1953), and The Immoral Proposition (1953), appeared in quick succession while he was in Europe, and his next two, All That is Lovely in Men (1955) and If You (1956), shortly after his return to America. In 1956 Creeley settled in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he remarried, taught at a boy's school until 1959, and took an MA from the University of New Mexico in 1960. Having worked as a tutor on a Guatemalan plantation, in the early1960s he began a new academic career--which led him in later years to the State University of New York, Buffalo--and became nationally known with For Love: Poems 1950-1960.
