Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

Fred Wah is Canada''s new Parliamentary Poet Laureate. That''s where we begin a big week for poetry in the news. That is followed by the announcement from Time Magazine that The Protester is Time''s person of the year. We focus on their write-up of Javier Sicilia of Mexico. This is followed by the inaugural Montreal International Poetry Prize, the biggest prize for a single poem, going to Australia''s Mark Tredinnick. We then hear from Nobel Peace Prize nominee Hu Jia on Nobel Peace Prize winner, the poet Liu Xiaobo. Those are our first articles in News at Eleven.

In our Great Regulars section, we have items echoing our Poetic Obituaries. Vclav Havel has died. We have an article from the Human Rights Foundation on this in Poetic Obituaries, but also Great Regular John Timpane writes about him. Christopher Hitchens has died. You will find some of his obituaries in Poetic Obituaries, but also in Great Regulars by Olivia Cole, Alison Flood, Hillel Italie, and Charles McGrath.

As always, there is plenty more. I have not even mentioned the poems. But I will let you get to your reading. Thanks for clicking in.
