Walter Cassara

In this article written some moderators of several blogs. There are who argue that there is little chance of publishing and poetry takes the form of blog to be able to reach more people. But one thing to keep in mind, that it is in favour of poetry and the fact that spreads easily, in oral form and this is an aspect that helps in some way, to save her. It also has another instance that is the declamatory, which has existed since antiquity and translates into see the poet and to hear her say. There are other systems that open new panoramas, for example those who claim that the book is not always guaranteed success since people, goes to a bookstore and not going to browse What’s in the poetry category. Blogs are used to promote the author and encourage to be sought in the bookstores. The other advantage of the blog is the immediacy. Someone thought that the poet foguea is through the comments which his works generated.

Apparently it is not the book itself, as an object, which is in crisis but what is behind through the publishers. Editorials are not in the hands of writers or poets excited about the project almost family before, are directed or in the hands of people who, sitting at a desk, think what would be best to sell. It is the opinion of Walter Cassara, poet and editor, in addition to editing to new authors making a kind of rescue of poets. Obviously the technology is a means to be read, to reach people who otherwise never read what one writes. What happens with the poet is that, although he knows that his work has closed channels, keep writing.

And there is another issue, to my mind, to highlight, I am referring to the poets of provinces far from the Capital, almost always end up being:-a good poet neuquino or Jujuy, but being recognized as Argentine poet, is very difficult. We must admit that, faced with the abandonment that almost all suffer from publishers or bookstores, poetry assumes other paths of dissemination, as it is that of virtual magazines or blogs. Poetry, from long ago, you must fight against those who argue that it is reading for an elite. One of the interviewees ensures that the narrators read poetry. We cannot say that it is because they are less sensitive. It is a matter of groups – says – to which must be added that, at a meeting of poetry is not understood nor half what you hear – narrows Muschietti writer. It becomes, thus, small private languages – he went on to say. To conclude I would say that, by what is seen, read and heard at all times see the poets resisting, either by that uncomfortable with what they say, because the publishers we not interested them or the public us ignores. There are also those who say that Internet is fine as a means of dissemination, that is good that you get to more places, but does not change the situation of literature.
