Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

We begin this week''s News at Eleven with poetry. The Concord Monitor brings us five by Kay Ryan. These are followed by the poetry of Marie Howe, brought to us via NPR, which is followed by some very intriguing and interesting articles, rounded out by the eleventh item in News at Eleven, our Back Page, which gives us Emily Dickinson''s recipe for coconut cake in her own handwriting. She and her friends would dip it into sherry.

Now that you know Emily Dickinson was something of a cook, did you know that Sylvia Plath was an artist? Her daughter Frieda Hughes brings us this information. You''ll find the link in our Great Regulars section. Lot''s of intriguing stuff in that section too. I''ll let you get to your browsing, where you''ll find, among other things, that the relationship John Keats'' had with his brother George, "sustained him and nurtured the poetic work that began to emerge in his teen years," and "that The New Yorker was [Elizabeth] Bishop''s first reader, not Robert Lowell, as had previously been thought."

Thanks for clicking in.
