Because I need to start closing tabs on my Web browser:
- Benjamin Friedlander‘s One Hundred Etudes and Citizen Cain (Friedlander interviewed by Nada Gordon)
- Bryan D. Dietrich’s “Gotham Wanes,” Chad Parmenter‘s Bat & Man: A Sonnet Comic Book, and Stephen Burt’s essay “Poems about Superheroes.” Samples of Parmenter’s work, though not all are sonnets:
- “These Great Sentinels” by Geoffrey Nutter is a contemporary nature poem I like. And yes, I initially thought it was about these Sentinels.
- Caryl Pagel’s Experiments I Should Like Tried at My Own Death
- notes on Umberto Eco’s “Dreaming of the Middle Ages” and “Living in the New Middle Ages”
- “To Be Not Stupid” (great title) by Amy De’Ath (great name) from her collection Caribou (great song). Earlier collection: Erec & Enide.
- Susan Schultz’s “Memory Cards: Oppen Series” (prose poems that begin with a phrase from George Oppen’s New Collected Poems)
- I actually first came across Oppen’s “lyric valuables” through Hank Lazer. Here’s a review of his essay collection Lyric & Spirit.
- excerpt from Andrew Mossin’s Drafts of Shelley
- A blog entry displaying a collection of vinyl from Dischord Records.
Andrew! So nice to see you here in WordPress! How come I never knew about this blog of yours? So late in the game! 🙂 Anyway, mine’s just a ranting space. 🙂 Good to have stumbled upon yours!
Great to see you here, too, and elsewhere on the Web (interesting the way you maintain the “fallacy” bit throughout). Despite how my LiveJournal had more personal content, which is to say I had more reason to keep that low-key, I just never bothered to announce this blog, which started as my “online notes” for the stuff I was reading. Looking forward to hearing from you here and there and everywhere!
