News at Eleven: Q: Name one poet, living or dead,

whose work you think is under-appreciated.

A: Polina Barskova. I bought her collection on the strength of one poem, "Conjunction And." I was so excited by the poem that I read it to my students at the beginning of each class for a week. The collection is slim; not much of Barskova's work is available in English. Let's hope for more.
