Dear Poetry Aficionados,

IBPC: Poetry & Poets in Rags:

This morning, as I was compiling this column, I was going back and forth about what should be our headliner. Many excellent articles have come out on Robert Burns, this past Sunday being his 250th birthday, celebrated in fine fashion worldwide. And yet Elizabeth Alexander''s inauguration poem was getting more and more reviews and critiques. I was leaning toward the poem. What''s bigger than the biggest poem ever, in terms of immediate audience followed by such intensity of coverage? Then the sad news came that John Updike died. In my searches, this story at least equals the intensity of coverage that took place last week after the inauguration. That''s amazing. That makes this easily the biggest week for poetry news since Poetry & Poets in Rags began.

You will find stories about John Updike, Elizabeth Alexander''s poem or the inauguration, and Robert Burns, throughout News at Eleven and Great Regulars. Also, in News at Eleven and Great Regulars are some remarkable poems, and other articles, important items that can be overshadowed in a week such as this, so please surf through.

Thanks for clicking in.
