Author description: ppg256-1, the first program in the ppg256 series, was Montfort's new year's poem for 2008. It is a Perl program that generates poems without recourse to any external dictionary, word list, or other data file. It was written, in part, to determine the essential elements of a poetry generator. The program itself is shorter than this description.(Description from the Electronic Literature Collection, volume 2)
