Wiersze z Google — problemy autorstwa i sprawczości w świetle teorii wiersza

Google poetics — issues of an authorship and agency within the view of a verse theory

This article presents an attempt to explain the popular internet phenomenon called Wiersze z Google (ang. Google Poetics), poems created by Google Searching engine — the most frequently used search engine on the World Wide Web. In author’s opinion these poems are not created by humans only, but just an „uncreative” effect of the poetic collaboration between the web browser, data bases, searching indexes and, last but not least, the users. Within the context of the theory of versification and some other intellectual backgrounds I try to show how these different agencies work together to create an unique poems based on peoples searchings, metadata and how words typed in the window of the browser become a poem-in-verses.
