Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

Our first four items in News at Eleven this week have to do with four national poets laureate, two present and two former, in this order: Louise Glck, Natasha Trethewey, Andrew Motion, and Carol Ann Duffy. In our Great Regulars section, David Biespiel also looks at Glck''s work. Her new book is out, Louise Glck: Poems 1962-2012.

Also in Great Regulars, we have poems by former laureates William Stafford (USA), Robert Bly (Minnesota), and Sharon Olds (New York), a current state laureate Paulann Petersen (Oregon), the National Poet of Wales Gillian Clarke, and the inaugural poet laureate of New Zealand Bill Manhire.

Our eleventh article in News at Eleven, the Back Page one, refers to former US Poet Laureate Donald Hall. And we can add to this an article by Great Regular Alison Flood, in which we find that the Nobel Laureate from 2009 Herta Mller has called the naming of Mo Yan as the winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Literature a "catastrophe."

We have many more articles than these. I''ll leave them to your discovery. Thanks for clicking in.
