historic

An “auto-bug-offery

§

Plagiarists of the past
alas

§

Yet another poem
entirely in questions,
this time
by Galway Kinnell

§

“Whitman’s exactly the right patron
for a poet like Kinnell

to make an SoQ
interesting

into an avant lineage)

§

Hooking up
thru the
London Review of Books

§

A second
New York Times
review of

“The biggest surprise,
not counting the space devoted to
Lake Baikal,
white slavery, Tamerlane's tomb
and Jonah and the whale,
is an astonishing excess of
ukuleles.”
John Leonard on
Against the Day
in The Nation

§

There are exactly
four books of poetry
among this year’s
New York Times
100 Notable Books
list, by
Louise Glück,
Allen Ginsberg,
Galway Kinnell
&
Ishmael Reed

(Glück,
who is 63,
is the “baby”
in this quartet)

§

“The pen is edgier than the blade”:
a poet-in-residence

§

UbuWeb
has converted all
of its rare and out-of-print
film & video holdings

a la YouTube,
which means that you
can view everything
right in your browser
without platform-specific software
or insanely
huge
downloads

(There are still some exceptions,
such as Frank Mouris’
Frank Film,
still my favorite instance
of film as poetry)
