The genesis of this series is a little odd and now somewhat obscure. There was someone on the web called Roger who was obviously a computer geek. He wrote a number of poems which used the framework of Edgar Allan Poe’s poem ‘The Raven’.
Roger’s URL was pcpoetry.com but unfortunately that is no longer on the horizon.

The maven series was suggested by somebody as a sort of fun propeller head competition to produce another technically orientated 'Raven'. So here I reproduce one of Rogers’s original 'Maven' poems and some attempts by me.

If anyone can reconnect with the original series I would be most interested to hear from them.
