Reading Reading Between A&B

I’ve only discovered the archives of now-defunct Reading Between A&B site, and while I wish some poems were still up (say, those by Matthea Harvey, Cole Swensen, and Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, to name only three), I’m quite pleased about the poems that are still there. Right now, I’m enjoying:

  1. Brian Teare, particularly for the variable shapes of his poems: linear, structural, and sonic
  2. John Gallaher, particularly for how his themes take form in precise diction and syntax
  3. Mary Jo Bang, particularly for the assonance, consonance, and alliteration she displays
