Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog

We have a few top stories this week. Our New at Eleven section leads with Natasha Trethewey accepting a second term as the United States Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress. She'll be working with one of our Great Regulars, Jeffrey Brown this term.

We have two separate sets of links for Sylvia Plath in our first section. One is about a reading that took place at the British Library featuring her daughter Frieda Hughes and Joanna David. The other has two articles that look at her life and works. One of the latter notes that "a more misread poem than "Daddy" scarcely exists."

Our Back Page, the eleventh story, is about Casey at the Bat. This comes just before our Great Regulars section, where there's a mixture of many types of items, including one by JohnTimpane who reviews the book "Baseball as a Road to God." You'll want to scroll through Great Regulars for some of the good poetry that has hit the web this week, tis just before the Poetic Obituaries.

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