Poetry & Poets in Rags of September 27

Postby rus bowden » Tue Sep 27, 2011 5:13 pm

Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog

We begin with Liao Yiwu, who is back in the news as he stops at Harvard on his tour. We have two articles on him that do a great job giving his background. This is followed in News at Eleven by a remarkable little autobiography by poet Pam Ayres. We go from there to Yiddish poet Naftali Herts Kon. And we're off around the world and into history as we go each week, including a visit through the infinite monkey theorum, onto our Back Page, where some virtual monkeys randomly typed Shakespeare's "A Lover's Complaint." You'll also find some good poetry and other items in our Great Regulars section, which comes before the third section, the Poetic Obituaries.

Congratulation are in order! Tyehimba Jess' August IBPC results are up. And here are the winning poems

1st place: Section 8 by Opie DeLetta of Wild Poetry Forum
2nd place: Solstice by Allen M. Weber of Desert Moon Review
3rd place: Ode to What Settles by Toni Clark of The Waters Poetry Workshop

Thanks for clicking in.
