Posted by Ozymandias on Friday, January 23, 2015 (09:28:48)

Powell, who is gay and H.I.V.-positive, published “Tea,” his first collection, in 1998, while the United States was still in the throes of its AIDS epidemic.

Posted by Ozymandias on Sunday, January 04, 2015 (03:48:43)

Vladimir Mayakovsky, the tragically emblematic poet of the early Soviet era, had a personality as big and tumultuous as the times he lived in, from the aesthetic upheaval of futurism through the political crisis of the October Revolution to the early purges of Stalinism. Mayakovsky cut a dashing figure; tall, disconcertingly handsome and a poet of incantatory quality who hypnotized all who heard him read.Link!

News in Poetry Breath and Being in the Poetry of Mark Strand
Posted by Ozymandias on Tuesday, December 30, 2014 (02:18:58)

An overwhelming presence of the invisible pervades much of Mark Strand’s poetry, a presence which is manifested as both a life force and as a vital catalyst of self. This presence is breath, an image which recurs repeatedly in Strands work and seems to stand for evidence of the existence and continuation of life, a vehicle or impetus for speech, a shared, universal spirit, and a perpetually pent-up possibility of redemption and renewal.
