Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

Fathers. We begin with news of Sylvia Plath''s father Otto coming to light. Apparently, her poem "Daddy", one of the great poems of last century, was light verse just as she said when she wrote it. It was the FBI that was mis-characterizing him as a Nazi sympathizer, not Sylvia. This story is followed by how the US Poet Laureate, Natasha Trethewey came to write her remarkable poem Elegy, which is for her father. The next story is about the progress that Mexican poet Javier Sicilia is making as his Caravan crosses the USA, something he began after his son was killed by drug lords.

I''ll leave the dozens of other items in all three of our sections to your discovery. Thanks for clicking in
