About PoetryDB

PoetryDB was created and is currently maintained by @thundercomb. They blog about poetry and related technology and other topics at thecombedthunderclap.blogspot.com.

Please note, I am in no way affiliated with the creator of PoetryDB. My intention with Rpoet is to help spread the word and hopefully increase interest in poetry and related projects that attempt to create a comprehensive databases of publicly available knowledge.
