Poetry News

Few news items:

  • Book Slut interviews Galway Kinnell
  • Poets Jayne Jaudon Ferrer and Terri McCord talk about the value and image of poetry today
  • Raymond Danowski donated his poetry collection (what many scholars believe to be the most important collection of English-language poetry in the world) to Emory University

And this interesting quote from Wallace Stevens:

Most people read poetry listening for echoes because the echoes are familiar to them. They wade through it the way a boy wades through water, feeling with his toes for the bottom: The echoes are the bottom.
