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

Every so often, there’s some kind of “death or uselessness of poetry” post or article that runs all viral on the Internet. So I’ve been meaning to write a post on why I think there’s value in poetry for a long while, but it was still simmering in me until I received this message on Facebook..

News in Poetry Unsung heroes of English etymology: Henry Bradley
Posted by fogglethorpe on Friday, April 11, 2014 (15:00:00)

To be sure, Henry Bradley is not an obscure figure, but even in his lifetime he was never in the limelight.

News in Poetry The cottage and the cottage cheese
Posted by fogglethorpe on Tuesday, April 08, 2014 (14:30:42)

Poetry News: The critic Helen Vendler said of the poetry of Howard Nemerov: "The world causes in Nemerov a mingled revulsion and love, and a hopeless hope is the most attractive quality of his poems, which slowly turn obverse to reverse, seeing the permanence of change, the vices of virtue, the evanescence of solidities and the errors of truth."

News in Poetry Getting started as a writer
Posted by fogglethorpe on Friday, March 28, 2014 (06:25:04)

So, is everyone clear that this is not, and has never been, a sensible line of work to go into? That the world of literature is a whirling cauldron of talent, yes, but also hype and sheer fluke? Fine.
