Input sought[edit]

I've made a comment at Wikipedia talk:Notability (people)#Creative professionals guidelines pertaining to notability criteria for writers. I think members of this project (particularly those interested in contemporary poetry and living poets) could bring valuable perspectives to the discussion. Cynwolfe (talk)

Kalidasa's Ritusamhara[edit]

I notice that the word samhara has been translated as collection or group and by extension, garland. Samhara as "destruction" has been very categorically rejected. I would tend to take the opposite view. The words for collection and destruction are close but not the same. The vowel shift in tatsama words from Sanskrit to Hindi can create this situation. The transliteration for the Sanskrit word for collection would be samahara (समाहार), and that for destruction would be samhara (संहार).

Kalidasa's poem dwells on the passing of the seasons - one making way for the other, and hence संहार samhara. The garlanding of the season's would have been समाहार samahara. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Quayes (talkcontribs) 00:56, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Isabella di Morra[edit]

I have expanded this article but it needs a grammar review since I'm not native English speaker. Thank you! --Generale Lee (talk) 08:39, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Lines on the Antiquity of Microbes no longer shortest poem...[edit]

When someone searches the shortest poem online, the Wikipedia link that is given is no longer accurate. How can it be updated? JusSol (talk) 15:16, 31 March 2017 (UTC)

Improving articles[edit]

Hi all, very new to editing, so please excuse me if this is not the correct place to ask! I'm wondering what the best way to connect with more seniors editors is in general, especially when thinking about editing articles? Right now, I'm specifically wondering about strategies to edit articles like & I've made notes in the respective talk pages for some suggestions but would love input. --Distancesarewhite (talk) 14:24, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

Using the article talk pages is a good way to start. Consider also looking at the edit history of the page. If you see editors who have contributed a fair amount, you can reach out to them directly on their user page. Also, don't forget to be bold and just edit things yourself. If you really mess up, someone will help you. --Midnightdreary (talk) 18:04, 3 July 2017 (UTC)
