Poetry & Poets in Rags of March 30th

Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

Last week, we headlined with Ted Hughes making it into Poets'' Corner. This week, we lead with his family situation, what his daughter Frieda says caused the divorce of the two great poets Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes. We then go into a sort of co-headliner, an article from Publishers Weekly which asks, among other questions, what is the point of poetry reviews. And it really is a week of headliners almost throughout News at Eleven. For instance, on our Back Page, the eleventh item of News at Eleven, where we find stories from different angles, Natalie Merchant has come out with a new album, on which she sings poems, accompanied by 130 remarkable musicians from varying genres of music. This may not only be a boost and boon for her as an artist, but she be taking the poetry world up with her to boot. Let''s see.
