Poetic Lives Online: Links by Brian Spears

By

Here’s some interesting reading from the world of poetry this week.

Michael Schaub at HTMLGIANT picks up where the Poetry Foundation left off a little while ago about martinis and poets. You’ll like their entries.

This is a little dated by internet standards, but it’s still worth looking at: Calvin Trillin versifies about the Roman Polanski apologists.

Ron Silliman declares this to be “The Most Interesting National Book Award
Finalists’ List Ever”
.

This is completely unsurprising. I suspect the numbers would be at least the same in the US.

I guess I’d call this a curiosity–Shakespeare’s sonnets in Morse Code in .mp3 format. That covers a nice range of technologies and time periods, I think.

And finally, a poet in the Peace Corps is chronicling her adventures in Mozambique.
