Poetry & Poets in Rags of April 9

Postby rus bowden » Tue Apr 09, 2013 4:54 pm

Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog

In our previous two weeks, two very important writer-poets have passed away, first Chinua Achebe and then Daniel Hoffman. So we have led with stories in our last of three sections, our Poetic Obituaries. This week, quite the reverse. Our top story is not a burial, but an exhumation. In Chile, they are exhuming the body of Pablo Neruda. Featured at the blog is a video of this from the Chilean Judiciary.

It must be National Poetry Month in the U.S., because there is an abundance of articles and poems coming out. The one on our Back Page does not seem to have anything to do with this, however. It is the announcement and link to the Best New Zealand Poems from 2012, each online, some with audio.

I'll let you get to your reading. There's lots to do. And thanks for clicking in.
