Dear Poetry Aficionados,Poetry & Poets in Rags blog
Our first three articles in News at Eleven are on three poets who either were or are jailed, with stories of torture and governments that would rather the world not see the truth. Our Back Page article, the eleventh, is about poet Joan Naviyuk Kane's remarkable spiritual quest into heritage. In between are seven top stories in poetry.
Among the poems linked to in our Great Regulars section is Baseball by John Updike, offered by Billy Collins, who is filling in for Garrison Keillor this month. This week, as each week, The Guardian's Carol Rumens brings us a poem for reading and discussion. She leads with her article, then the poem, then the open discussion you can log into and join.
We have dozens more articles in the poetry news this week, some in our Poetic Obituaries section. I'll let you get to your reading. Thanks for clicking in.
