Poetic Lives Online: Links by Brian Spears


Welcome to Saturday night. Hope you like what I’ve dug up for you this week.

Okay, this first one isn’t technically poetry, but if you’re interested in Bright Star, Jane Campion’s film about John Keats, Abigail Deutsch has compiled a bunch of reviews. 55, to be exact. Take your time.

Delirious Hem has a fascinating project going. I can’t really explain it–you have to experience it for yourself.

An interview with Jim Buckmaster of Craigslist on the little haikus that pop up from time to time on the site.

Matthew Zapruder on what makes poetry, poetry.

And finally, what’s the point of having a column like this if you don’t use it to publicize the work of your friends from time to time: go enjoy Stacy Kidd’s “13 Arkansas” in Verse Daily. See you next week.
