Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog

For the past few weeks, Christian Wiman's latest book My Bright Abyss has been making the news, with all good reviews. This week, the article we have on it is our first link in News at Eleven. It headlines in a week with excellent items on Yeats and Pessoa, Alexander Pope, Juan Felipe Herrera (and bullying), Colin Morton (and plagiarism), Hua Wenfeng, Clive James and Dante, Ian Hamilton, Billy Collins, Sylvia Plath and, on our Back Page, Allen Ginsberg.

Our next section, Great Regulars, also has important articles, as this is why they are great. These regulars include Shannon Doyne from the New York Times, Alison Flood from The Guardian, Troy Jollimore in The Chronicle Herald, Rodger Kamenetz in The Huffington Post, Mary Karr with a poem in The Writer's Almanac, Garrison Keillor who brings us The Writer's Almanac, Ted Kooser of American Life in Poetry, Wesley McNair of The Portland Press Herald, Luisetta Mudie at Radio Free Asia, Michael Rosen in The Independent, and Carol Rumens in The Guardian.

And there's more, more Great Regulars, plus our Poetic Obituaries section. Thanks for clicking in.
