Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

We begin this week with the report of a remarkable translation project that takes us to Hell for poetry, and I don''t mean Lofoten. After the link to the article, there is a link to the project''s web site. In addition to this poetry, scroll to our Great Regulars section, where we have some terrific poems to read as usual. Among them, Kristen Hoggatt offers up some John Ashbery, Garrison Keillor brings us two by Dorianne Laux, one called The Beatles and the other Cher, Ted Kooser looks at a poem called The Word That Is a Prayer, Michael Rosen reads four of his to us, the Arty Semite publishes some Morris Rosenfeld, but Jay Parini notes the ten best ever from America. (Really?)

We have excellent news articles too. Also in Great Regulars, David Ulin gives us 9 ways of looking at earthquakes through literature, René Wadlow marks the anniversary of Ghandi''s Salt March, and Tenzin Gyatso officially devolves his formal authority in favor of a democratic process. Oh yes, news galore. And there''s more in our News at Eleven section, as always.

For the second week running, the InterBoard Poetry Community (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com) issued results from judge Kwame Dawes (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/judges/kwame-dawes) with his commentary, this time February''s. Thanks to him, and congrats to the poets and IBPC boards where the winning poems were workshopped.

1st Place: Exile, by Lois P. Jones, of PenShells
2nd Place: Green Holly Man New Year, 2011, by Laurie Byro, of Desert Moon Review
3rd Place: the necromancer, by Milner Place, of PoetryCircle
4th Place (or HM): House of Ash, by mignon ledgard, of conjunction

Thanks for clicking in.
