Poetry & Poets in Rags of June 24th

Poetry & Poets in Rags of June 24th

Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

We begin in China, with the earthquake victims: then onto the "terrible beauty" of war poetry. News at Eleven ends with a solar eclipse in Homer, followed by baseball in the Bible. In Poetic Obituaries and Great Regulars, we have three links to articles on George Carlin.

We've linked in the past to the poetic justice in Vermont, where adolescent partiers, who vandalized Robert Frost's place, had to attend a Jay Parini class on Frost. This week, we link to his very moving article on the matter from his Great Regulars spot. You'll also find a Las Vegas twist to poetic justice in News at Eleven.

We have dozens of links as usual. And this is an intriguing week, with poems, for instance, called "Confiteor" by Gabrielle Althen and "Propofol" by Great Regular Karl Kirchwey; but street philosophical to a degree, religious to degrees and academic as well; a week that finger picks the strings of our lives.
