English’s Walt Hunter discussed his impressions of ChatGPT’s attempts at writing poetry

ChatGPT is pretty bad at poetry, according to poets
Vice News: Walt Hunter, chair of the Department of English at the College of Arts and Sciences, said his initial impression of ChatGPT’s attempts at poetry were amusing, sort of entertaining and terrible. “The rhymes are clunky, there’s tired metaphors: it doesn’t take somebody schooled in the history of English poetry to say, ‘I’m not sure that’s a masterpiece of a poem,’” he said.
