April 17th forum announcement

Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog

We begin this week with a very cool 40th birthday present. Tracy K. Smith was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry just yesterday, on her birthday. You'll also find Hillel Italie reporting on the Pulitzer announcements in our Great Regulars section.

It's a week of important stories from previous weeks, carrying through and developing. The deaths of Reed Whittemore and Adrienne Rich continue to conjure important tributes for our reading. Those are in our Poetic Obituaries section.

To cross the pond, reaction to the Günter Grass poem continues to develop. We have a clutch of links on our Back Page, the eleventh story in News at Eleven. You'll also find that Great Regular Alison Flood brings us a development twist on the Grass story.

We have so much more. Our second item, for instance, is an interview with poetry by Philip Levine. And there are dozens more articles. I'll let you get to your reading.

Thanks for clicking in.
