Can computers write good poetry? What does that even mean?

Computers can be programmed to do a variety of tasks which, if a human had done them, we might identify as creative tasks. But does that mean that they themselves are creative? We examine the state of the art in computer-generated poetry, and examine a variety of ways in which potentially sensible ways of assessing whether a system is creative don't actually work well in practice. Finally, we discuss a few attempts to incorporate advanced aspects of human poetry writing, including editing one’s own work to improve it, into a computational creativity system.
