Poetry & Poets in Rags of September 18

Poetry & Poets in Rags of September 18

Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

We have a remarkable issue this week, lots of important events and views in poetry. We begin with Natasha Trethewey officially beginning her stint as the Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress. This is followed by a New York Times article on Stephen Burt, which headlines "Poetry''s Cross-Dressing Kingmaker."

Then we have Javier Sicilia and the Caravan for Peace finishing it''s journey across the USA. The Caravan has been our lead story most weeks since it began. The next two stories in News at Eleven this week have also taken the lead spot during this time: the capture, imprisonment, and subsequent release of poets Farid Huseyn and Shahriyar Hajizade from Iranian prison; and the now free-to-travel Aung San Su Kyi coming to the USA to accept the highest civilian award.

I almost have to speak of the remarkable next article, but will leave that, the rest of News at Eleven, all of Great Regulars, and all of Poetic Obituaries to your discovery. Thanks for clicking in.
