Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

On Saturday, Philip J. Crowley of the U.S. Department of State called for the release of Syrian then-teen poet and blogger Tal Al-Mallouhi, who has been under arrest since December 2009. Yesterday, she was sentenced to 5 years in prison. This is where we begin in News at Eleven.

In our second story, we look at Pascale Petit''s book "What the Water Gave Me: Poems after Frida Kahlo." We follow this with an article on Burma''s imprisoned and most famous comedian and poet Zarganar. We then have a link to an essay on Language poetry, which becomes a review specifically about Michael Gottlieb''s latest book Memoir and Essay.

Usually I try to blend themes one into the next. This week, I decided to alternate and mix it up more. Hope this works for you. There just seemed to be these distinct and interesting story lines.

After the Gottlieb item, comes a link to an article about the new movie on Robert Graves. This is followed by Utah Poet Laureate Katharine Coles going to Antarctica, which is followed by 5 more links in News at Eleven, 30 in Great Regulars, and 9 Poetic Obituaries. A week of excellent poetry and essays.

Thanks for clicking in.
