Poem generator, September 17, 2009

This is a hypertext collection of poems demonstrating the basic functionality of the authorís Interactive Poetry Extension to Inform 7. The poems are all single stanza quatrains. The first line of all the poems reads ďArid and paleĒ. The reader chooses one of the words of this line and the poem is incremented by one line according to that choice.

As a collection of poetry I didnít find the work very convincing (though it might well be more to somebody elseís taste); anyway, the collection was probably intended more as a demonstration of the extension than as an attempt to achieve literary immortality.
