Generating Décimas using computer generated text.
A 'décima' is a poetic style composed of 10 eight-syllable-lines stanzas, with a rhyming scheme of ABBAACCDDC. It is a very used style in Latin American and Spanish folk literature. 
Final project for Allison Parish's class "Reading and Writing Electronic Text"

The input text of this piece is the Introduction of the book by Eduardo Galeano "Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent". Each line is trained into a reversed Markov Chain model to generate lines that rhyme and then put together following the poetic style rules.
