Logical Poetry

Plant Sale

What is "logical poetry"?

It comes from a book called Structured Programming (1972) by Edsger Dijkstra, a renowned educator in software engineering. I quote:

The classroom experiment described in this section took place at the end of a course entitled "Introduction to the Art of Programming", for which separate lecture notes - with exercises and all that - were written. As at the moment of writing the students that followed this course have still to pass their examination, it is for me still an open question how successful I have been. They liked the course, I have heard that they described my programs as "logical poems", so I have the best of hopes.
