Poetic Lives Online: Links by Brian Spears

By

A movie about poets? I’m amazed that it got made in the first place.

We linked to it earlier this week, but I think it bears relinking–Martin Earl’s observation on how women seem to be the real groundbreakers in contemporary poetry.

Robert Archambeau is trying to help save Salt Publishing.

Ruth Padel has been elected the new Oxford professor of poetry.

The last man convicted of blasphemy by the British Crown has died.

A defense of snobbery. I don’t fully agree but there’s some good stuff in there, particularly on how all poets are marginal to the outside world.
