VINTAGE STUFF....


A poem is considered vintage if it was made from 1919
towards the end of 1930.

However, there is debate on the cut-off of the vintage period.
The British consider 1930 as the cut-off,
while Americans prefer the year 1925,
as defined by the Classic Poem Club of America.

There are people who think that the vintage period overlaps the classic period, while others consider the beginning of World War II as the cut-off date for the vintage period.

Most of the poems written during this period are more practical and convenient.

Metaphors such as radio and heating were introduced
while the introduction of antifreeze has allowed water-cooled poems
to be useful all year round.

A much more reliable four-wheel poem system using a foot pedal and hydraulically-actuated figure of speech were also introduced in this period. Fuel quatrain rating, which allowed comparison between sonnets, and the brief haiku, was among the innovations in this period as well.
