Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

Our News at Eleven section is name dropping this week: Osip Mandelstam, Dannie Abse, Philip Larkin, Wendell Berry, Kevin Young, and Gnter Grass. Let''s add to this list Cengiz Dagci, Peter Redgrove, and A.M. Klein. We begin with the big name, Liu Xiaobo, still being held by the obstinate individuals who are running things in China.

We also have a WWII theme running through some of our stories, the bombing of England, Germans against Jews, the Soviets versus Germany, and others. This leads into Bryan Appleyard''s article linked to in our Great Regulars section, which shows, among other things, how WWII changes the way we read Shakespeare. Keep reading through Great Regulars, and you''ll find some excellent poetry, one by former U.S. poet laureate Reed Whittemore who passed away this month. And more name dropping, Seamus Heaney and Billy Collins, for instance.

It''s a full week for poetry news. I''ll let you get to your reading. Thanks for clicking in.
