Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

J.D. Salinger died. In Poetic Obituaries (the third of our three sections), we have links to four of his obituaries, selected for depth and scope. In Great Regulars (our second section), you''ll find articles on Salinger by Hillel Italie, Charles McGrath, Jay Parini, John Timpane, and David Ulin, each looking at a different aspect of Salinger''s life. Not since the death of John Updike last year, have our Great Regulars taken up such a conversation on the same writer or topic. It''s a good one too.

Also in Great Regulars, climate change becomes a point to poetically ponder. Luisetta Mudie has an article on this, and Frank Wilson writes an essay referring to Luisetta''s, who in turn responds directly to Frank''s in a comment below his article. Thus two of our long-time Great Regulars meet on the web. We also have a climate change poem in that same section, in CounterPunch Magazine, which this week directly follows Frank''s link.

But we begin almost two weeks from now, with Valentine''s Day poems from Times Online, including an offer to "sign up to send a poem by mobile." Great Regular Andrew Motion goes into this a bit more in his article saying, "The idea is simple. You choose the reader and the poem you think is likely to have the desired effect on your beloved, then send it to his or her mobile phone."
