Mini-Review

I wrote a little diddy about Rae Armantrout’s book NEXT LIFE.

Back at school today but I have two good poems to post later for you. I hope you re-visit tonight. Or tomorrow. The next day? Next life?

    September 5th, 2007 at 2:13 pm eApologies for the confusion.
    I enjoy all the reviews, the commentaries,
    and the poetic education here.
    I sort of attend this blog as a class of sorts,
    and sometimes follow the tips to chapbooks,
    so I tend to assume great analysis up front.

    some backdrop to Amy’s review (Armantrout on early Armantrout):
    http://epc.buffalo.edu/authors/armantrout/poetics.html
    The earlier samples are handy to getting into this advanced stuff.

    …did I hear a few poems cookin’ , A.?

    And I’ll check out the new Poetry, Don – thanks for the tip!

    As for poems forthcoming, oh how I wish!

    Cheers!
