Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog

Daniel Hoffman, the twenty-second U.S. Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress, nowadays known as U.S. Poet Laureate, has died 4 days short of his 90th birthday. A wonderful man and a brilliant poet, the stories on his life are just starting to come out. John Timpane in our Great Regulars section covers this, and so does WHYY NewsWorks in Poetic Obituaries. R.I.P. or, as he wrote, "let's welcome the oncome of days that will not feel as though we're living in a beaker atop a bunsen burner."

In our first section, News at Eleven, we begin with our new month April being National Poetry Month. One article is calling for International Anti-Poetry Month, and a second is questioning whether it is an oxymoron. This is followed by two articles on Caroline Kennedy's new book, one saying that she "has become ambassador to world of poetry."

Many very interesting articles on poetry and poets this week, from all over the world, and lots of poetry to surf into. Thanks for clicking in.
