In the mail today:
The new issue of Poetry, with a fascinating essay by Tony Hoagland, "Fear of Narrative and the Skittery Poem of Our Moment." Basically exploring the recent fad of the elliptical-disjunctive poem, and seeing it as possibly just another phase that is going on right now.
The latest issue of New England Review, with my poem "Nursemaid's Elbow," (thank you, C. Dale) as well as work by fellow blogger David Koehn of The Great American Pinup. Also included is a hysterically campy long poem by Richard Howard, "Eidyia: An Interview," purportedly from an "audience" with the Queen herself.
Looking forward to AWP. Looking forward to meeting up with any and all bloggers. Don't be shy, say "Hi," if our paths cross.
