Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

In News at Eleven, we cover a lot of Asian ground. We begin with poets dancing in Afghanistan, then to a soldier who was in Iraq, then to South Korea, where the poems of teens defected from North Korea have been translated into English for us, then to South Asian women as reported by one from Pakistan, then to a Tibetan given a 15-year sentence. We then go to Dorothy Parker, then to Maya Angelou, then to Natasha Trethewey. And, by the way, two of our Great Regulars, Fatima Bhutto and Fiona Sampson, are written about in articles linked to from News at Eleven.

There is more from our Great Regulars not to be missed. In this section, to give a few men a shout out too, be sure to click into the articles by Terry Eagleton, Adam Kirsch, and Robert Pinsky. If you''re from the USA, and would like some poetry with a Thanksgiving Day theme, click in to see what Garrison Keillor has on the table. And how about those poems by Kim Addonizio and Liz Waldner? Good stuff.

I''ll let you get to your reading. It''s a chock full and quality week for news in poetry. Thanks for clicking in.
