Posted by fogglethorpe on Friday, July 18, 2014 (15:00:00)

Reading Distler’s collection of short lyrics is like poring over unmatted, unframed watercolor sketches. One suspects the poet knows a thing or two about painting when, in the poem "Duck Harbor," we read, "We’re greedy too--he for wind and sea;/me, the colors and shapes/ of a day at the beach."

News in Poetry The Most Modern Poet
Posted by Ozymandias on Wednesday, July 09, 2014 (05:44:01)

Patricia Lockwood's Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals gave me the peculiar feeling that I was reading the first true book of poetry to be published in the 21st century. I almost didn't write about this feeling, for fear of insulting every other poet whose books I've read and loved in the last 14 years. But understand me: This is not a declaration of war on everything that came before, but rather a celebration of a talented writer who finally figured out a way, consistently, to distill pure music out of the business-savvy, meme-injected language in which we marinate every day.Link!
