Tag Archives: Poetry on MTV

MTV Monitors Poetry. Sort of.

Yes, you read those words right.

I never thought I’d write the words ‘MTV’ and ‘poetry’ without some level of irony but it seems that MTV is taking note of how young people deploy poetry via politics and the race to the White House.

Elsewhere on the MTV Remote Blog, we hear about a young actress who wants to publish a collection of poems. The blog goes on about sonnets, odes and villanelles. There’s even reference to ‘a dactylic hexameter’!

Call us incredulous but can this really be? MTV and poetry? Are we right to be so pleasantly taken aback to find poetry where we least expected?

And they say poetry is dead.
