The Computer Part e-
The Computer Part e is Rickthepoetwarrior’s commentary on the digital age and the age of the internet and all of the issues or positives of this era. The quote from Stephen Hawking at the beginning of the anthology is particularly poignant in this volume and helps the author reinforce his ideas. It has really stuck with me, especially after reading the work. I also appreciated the amusing dictionary the author included to help understand his plays on words and puns that ultimately make the poems quite humorous and his arguments more impactful.
In terms of the actual commentary on modern internet issues, Rickthepoetwarrior touches on many subjects that are becoming more and more prominent in modern society. In particular he does an excellent job of pointing out the nuances of isolation that the internet and computers or smartphones can cause, both because it takes away the need for socialization, at least in popular culture, and because of the constant stream of self-centered content we see online.
The book also heavily discusses the way the internet and automation continues to objectify women and marginalize them in his poems about a real device that reduces women to sexual objects. Overall the book offers a lot of unique perspectives on the internet age that are worth considering and evaluating, both in ourselves and society at large.
