July 9th forum announcement

Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog

This week, we begin with a collection of a colonial 13 poems for Independence Day. Ten stories later, our Back Page article is about the national pastime of the USA. Also in News at Eleven, we have a sampling of the poetry up for the Forward prizes; an interview with Griffin Poetry Prize winner Fady Joudah; a look at how California's Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera turns tables; and an article by Clive James on his reasoning and methods in translating The Divine Comedy. This accounts for about half of our first eleven stories.

In Great Regulars, along with the fresh poetry and fresh looks at poems, we have a wide mix of essays, something for everyone, which for some of us is a lot of very good reading. Also, be sure to take a scroll through Poetic Obituaries.

Thanks for clicking in.
