Poetry & Poets in Rags of January 31

Postby rus bowden » Tue Jan 31, 2012 9:27 pm

Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog

We have such a variety of topics this week, and our Great Regulars section is packed with more articles than most weeks. This is because a larger number than usual of our Great Regulars put articles out, but also, many of them, such as Judith Fitzgerald, Alison Flood, Hillel Italie, and Garrison Keillor have multiple articles. Plus, two stories that are covered inside Great Regulars, are also covered outside. The Oregonian brings us a poem by Marty Christensen, who is also to be found in our Poetic Obituaries section. And Great Regulars Alison Flood and Judith Fitzgerald both cover our first story in News at Eleven, the lead story of the week. A new poetry war is brewing. Geoffrey Hill, the Oxford University Professor of Poetry, has fired the first shot at the UK's Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy. That Canadian Judith Fitzgerald has thown a punch, makes it a global confrontation.

I'll let you get to your reading. Thanks for clicking in.
