Allen Ginsberg

Allen GinsbergHowl turned 50 this week! The poem that sealed Ginsberg’s fame and shaped a generation of poetics is half a century. Who can resist the pure, unselfconscious energy of Howl? The confidence of it, the determination, the sureness—perhaps rooted in Ginsberg’s knowing that his project was/is a continuation of a grand project started, become...

Marilyn Hacker

There are some new poems in Lodestar Quarterly yet another journal I know little about, but now will be looking at more closely since it seems to be a fairly serious queer literary journal—an online Bloom? They’ve included Edmund White, Jewelle Gomez, Mark Doty and others…But really this is a good reason to talk about...

Andres Ajens

Here’s a snippet from the Mouré translation of Andrés Ajens, as described in the previous post.iv. rough trial (auto).The automobile bile, one wheel off-keel, themoirai to the left, atrop-ical behind,as for those other two, so eternally unerring,with bits of one, child of a flirt whose permit’s suspended,ever-exceeding,(m)aimed toward home, theco-reign of herbicides fervently afar, withmagdalene...

Traffic East Magazine

Traffic East, okay, does anyone know about this magazine? It’s out of Buffalo. They do an amazing job, really, the look is so slick, so, I don’t know, Vogue-like. Lots of very impressive ads etc. And yet they publish poetry. Beacoup de poésie. Three of my poems in the last issue, for example, and I...

Poem by Erin Moure

It came to me this evening as I was on the basketball court. Erin Moure! You haven’t thought of Erin Moure in a while now and you didn’t put that poem up on Lemon Hound like you wanted to! Why would anyone think of Erin Moure while on the basketball court? Is it because she...

Yet another reason to reconsider Sharon Olds

This caught my eye in the NY Times today. Ms. Olds, in a letter on the Web site of The Nation (thenation.com/doc/20051010/olds), said she found the invitation appealing. “But I could not face the idea of breaking bread with you,” she wrote in a letter to Mrs. Bush. “I knew that if I sat down...

Meeka Walsh on Sharon Olds in Border Crossings

First of all I have to say that I have been, in my life, a big Sharon Olds fan. Perhaps as big a Sharon Olds fan as I am a fan of BorderCrossings. However unlike Border Crossings I fell out of love with Olds and largely view her now, as a parody of herself. Not...
