Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

In an arrogant act of bullying, the Chinese government has been detaining not only the Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo, but has had his wife Liu Xia under illegal house arrest since the prize announcement last year. Apparently and surprisingly, she got online and found a friend for a brief chat. We begin News at Eleven this week with a link to an article that has a translated tran of that chat.

The link that follows is to an article called "Poetry in Revolt" and this sets a stage for the next couple of links, one on Miguel Hern√°ndez and a review of the movie Howl, which has some excellent background on the poem.

Further down in News at Eleven you''ll find two links about poets with dual influences, Jackie Kay, "Both Igbo and Scottish" and Akbar Ahmed, who paired both Islamic and English influences into his work.

In Great Regulars, we link to excellent poetry from around the globe. And then in Poetic Obituaries, we find out, for instance, that the foremost poet of Lithuania, Justinas Marcinkevičius, has died.

And there''s much more. Thanks for clicking in.
