The Society Of Classical Poets Literary Magazine
We are dedicated to the continuation of Beauty, Goodness, Truth, and excellent poetry. Unlike most of the SCP’s motley crew, Anderson is not a terrible poet. He can and does write grammatically correct sentences for the most part, and that immediately raises him to an exalted level among the generally semiliterate Scops. But in order to be considered for Poet Laureate, a poet would have to have written some exceptional poems, or at least a few that were very good. I have read a number of Anderson’s poems over the years, and I can honestly say that none of them ever struck me as very good, much less exceptional.
For instance, the famous Chinese novel, Dream of the Red Chamber by Cao Xueqin, is entirely framed by a Buddhist monk and Taoist priest talking to each other and by ideas of karma, predestination, and reincarnation. The other famous Chinese novel, Journey to the West by Wu Cheng’en, takes pilgrimaging Buddhist monks as its main characters—just imagine if Prince Hamlet, Robinson Crusoe, and the Count of Monte Cristo were all Christian monks! That is the depths of the spirituality of Chinese culture before communism. It is also paramount to realize that Falun Dafa in itself is representative of Chinese culture, which was always deeply spiritual before communism took hold in 1949 and actively started destroying traditional culture during the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s and 1970s. Rhyme and other traditional techniques are encouraged as well. If you want to capture a feeling that you experienced and have an interest in taking part in any poetry contest, then here is an excellent opportunity for you sponsored by the Winning Writers.
It is in the songs on the radio, in our national anthems, and in the fight songs of our favorite sports teams; it pervades our literature, our history, and our culture. But, despite poetry’s abundance, poetry that is both new and good is hard to find now, more than ever. Such good, new poetry carries a message infused with the profound insights and lofty character of the poet. It touches on humanity’s quintessential quest for virtue over vice, epic over ephemeral, and beauty over baseness.

Look at the weighty responsibilities that he was shouldering, day and night, since he had to look after the health and welfare of so many people, and decide what was in the best interests of society as a whole! Under so much stress, surely he can be forgiven if he lost his temper now and then. Oh, and please let’s hear some more about how prejudicial–dare we say racist?
There is more—a LOT more—but believe me, you don’t want to read it. Dusty Grein is best taken in very small doses, if at all. But what about the crime of publishing this trainwreck? I only wish I could be there to hear Ms. Hayden’s guffaws and chortles when she reads Grein’s poem. If she’s drinking anything at the time, I suspect it will be expelled violently through her nostrils.
At FreeEducator, we strive to create the best admission platform so that international students can go to the best universities – regardless of financial circumstances. A haven for the sort people who applaud each others’ complaints about “cancel culture” while simultaneously censoring any sort of criticism of their own views. Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
Muck’s breathless press release tells us that his book contains “major poetry by a major poet” and that he is “one of the foremost sonneteers in the world.” (Again like Shakespeare!) Who has made such extravagant claims for Muck? Another Society mainstay, James Sale, a “Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.” (What, no peerage?) As I pointed out in my review ofThe Keystone Scops, extravagant claims have also been made for Mr. Sale. “The Society of Classical Poets” is a non-profit organization that publishes works on classical poetry, classical arts, and classical culture in general. It is the largest organization in the world dedicated to publishing classical style English-language poetry. Poetry is an art form in which human language is used for its aesthetic qualities in addition to, or instead of, its notional and semantic content. Poetry writing is also a desire for plenty of writers.
Anderson seems like a journeyman to me; thus I cannot take his nomination seriously. Beginning in 2019, in addition to the daily posting of formal poetry on its web site, the Society of Classical Poets has held public events for the promotion of traditional poetry with meter and rhyme. They will also be posting a review of my latest poetry book Selected Verse – Heroes and Wonders in mid-May, so I look forward to reading what they think of that collection.
