Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

Two men''s names recur in the news this week, both are poets and activists: Dennis Brutus, who has died, and Liu Xiaobo, who was sentenced to eleven years in jail. You will find news and poetry of Dennis Brutus in the Great Regulars section, from Hillel Italie, E. Ethelbert Miller, and PBS Newshour, and in our Poetic Obituaries. Links to news on Liu Xiaobo''s situation are in our News at Eleven section, and in Great Regulars from the Dalai Lama and Luisetta Mudie.

We begin with Willis Barnstone, linking to both an article on his translation of the Bible, and and interview with him. This leads off a very big week in poetry news. So I''d best let you get to reading.

Happy New Year! And thanks for clicking in in 2009.
