Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

If Czeslaw Milosz were alive today, he would be celebrating his 100th birthday next month. So Rabindranath Tagore, who turned 150 earlier this month was 50 when Milosz was born. Their Nobel Prizes in Literature were 67 years apart. This week, their times come together in Poetry & Poets in Rags. We begin with links to fresh articles on Milosz, and these are followed by one on Tagore.

Also in News at Eleven, we have two articles on different May-December marriages in poetry, and neither are Donald Hall and Jane Kenyon. If you know your poetry history, one of the two will come right to mind.

In Great Regulars, I should point out that if you''re looking for Jeffrey Brown''s column, it''s in Robert Pinsky''s area, because the interview is about Pinsky. Same if you''re looking for the weekly poem from PBS, it is a Pinsky poem, so in Pinsky''s area.

As always, we have dozens of links to the poetry news for this past week. I''ll let you get to clicking. And thanks for clicking in.
