Poetry Roundup: Messianic Pleasures Edition
Over at BOMBlog, poet and artist Eric Amling interviews Jon Leon about his new collection The Malady of the Century (Future Tense Books, 2012).
In case you weren’t able to make it to Unbound, a symposium on the future of the book, their website has a number of audio recaps and videos from the event.
If you are a Heather Christle fan, her wonderful poetry collection The Difficult Farm (Octopus Books, 2010), is now available in an attractive red.
I keep watching these videos of Mary Ruefle, one of my favorite poets, reading her work over at the L.A. based Machine Project.
Over at Jacket 2, San Francisco poet Aaron Shurin talks about his “narrative practices” and his masterful collection of prose poems, Citizen (City Lights, 2012).
I can’t tell you how excited I am for Letter Machine Editions to publish Grace Period: Notebooks 1998-2007, a new collection by Aaron Kunin. You should also take a look at Letter Machine’s catalog of books.
