Dear Poetry Aficionados,

IBPC: Poetry & Poets in Rags:

The Beijing Olympics are over, and everyone's gone home except for those detained for exercising freedom. We begin this week reading about Woeser and her arrest in The Times. Our second article is from Reporters Without Borders and condemns both the Chinese government and the International Olympic Committee.

Also in our News at Eleven section, a couple articles for Dickinson fans, another on how Frankenstein was sewn together in the Shelley's bedroom, some poetry for your approval, including a Pascale Petit translation of a Wang Xiaoni poem. And check out the Back Page, but just before it the story of the Pulitzer hoax.

This week, long overdue, we add Adam Kirsch to our Great Regulars. Also added this week is Kristen Hoggart who's got this nifty "Ask a Poet" column starting up as of, it looks like, three weeks ago. We link to all three.

Thanks for clicking in.
