Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

Daisy Fried takes a look at Franz Wright for us this week. This is our first link. It is followed by some very interesting pieces. And I say "interesting" because that seems to characterize what''s in the poetry news as we segway into the fall for some reason. Matthew Zapruder talks about poetry writing. Michael Rosen gets a workshop-like critique of a poem he just drafted from a child he premiered it to. The Best American Poetry is out, and David Lehman is saying, "Poetry criticism is at its worst today," and he names names. Our Back Page item is about a study that shows reading absurdist literature makes people smarter--interesting. My hypothesis is that Poetry & Poets in Rags does. So News at Eleven begins with a Franz (Frank Wright) and ends with one (Franz Kafka)--interesting.

And we have more, excellent poetry and thought-provoking articles abounding in Great Regulars; plus a full Poetic Obituaries. Thanks for clicking in.

If you get a chance, click into the IBPC pages at WebDelSol.com. The results are in for August. Here are the winning poems with George Szirtes'' commentary: link=http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/2009/08
