“Sometimes the facts of Len Roberts’ world are raw, nearly coarse, the questions...(Read More)

Plato's Defence of Poetry (June 1984)
Julius A. Elias - Author

Ignorant, irrational and irresponsible: these are the terms used by Plato when referring to poets. Yet the philosopher acknowledged that he was not insensible to the charms of poetry, and many would agree that Plato's myths are themselves poetry of the very first rank.

C. D. Wright - Author

“CD Wright’s is a poetry of  Southern mountain vision brought to the streets in a language of brilliant synaesthesia, colloquial warmth and laconic wit. These are unpredictable poems of jazz, dreams, domestic violence and ‘what is written on mirrors in Louisville.’ The territory is uniquely Wright’s, but borders that of James Agee and Diane Arbus: common, strange and filled with risk.

Complete Poems and Collected Letters of Adelaide Crapsey (June 1977)
Susan S. Smith - Editor

This book presents the poetry and letters of the American writer Adelaide Crapsey (1878-1914). Her best poetry deserves to be enjoyed by a larger audience, and her letters and newly discovered biographical materials reveal new charm and meaning in an intriguingly elusive character.

Crapsey did not live to see any of her mature poetry published: she received notice that her first poem had been accepted for publication only a...(Read More)
