Dear Poetry Aficionados,Poetry & Poets in Rags blog
Today is the last day of National Poetry Month. On our Back Page, which is the eleventh story in News at Eleven, we have articles, each with a multiple of book reviews. This is preceded by the results The Philadelphia Inquirer's annual poetry contest. Our Back Page is succeeded by our first links in our Great Regulars section, which has Seth Abramson giving his contemporary poetry reviews for National Poetry Month 2013. Just those three stories alone cover a slew of poetry.
While in our Great Regulars section, let me draw your attention to a few poems for various tastes. You'll find both Crazy by Sharon Olds and One Place to Begin by John Daniel in Garrison Keillor's links, and Four stills from "The Poet" (a film) for Tom Raworth by Anselm Hollo as the last link in that section, as The Time Literary Supplement's link. When perusing the Poetic Obituaries, which is our third section, scroll back up into Great Regulars, where you'll find that Portsmouth Herald News has brought us a poem by New Hampshire's now deceased poet laureate Walter Butts.
Let's begin the week in News at Eleven, though, where our first article is about a serial plagiarist, and is written by one of the poets he plagiarized, Sandra Beasley.
