Read in last two days:
c.c. by Tyrone Williams--mentioned a few days ago.
This Connection of Everyone With Lungs by Juliana Spahr--journal poetics/continuing her interests in connectivity, on a grand scale. politically awake writing. but also the growing sense of Nature in her poetry. a lot of species show up. also thankful that there is a great deal of vulnerability on display. that takes courage.
Call Me Ishmael by Charles Olson--will have more to say on this in a bit.
Considering how exaggerated music is by Leslie Scalapino--this is just a wonder of a book. really enjoy the "spoken" feeling of much of this, and all the endless modifying--as one does when speaking--before the sentence comes through and out.
Personae by Ezra Pound--I've never been interested in retellings of fables, or myths, or persona poems. I keep wondering where Ezra is in all of this? Because he isn't an early French troubadour, nor Egyptian. I'm all for ambition as long as one doesn't sound inauthentic in the process--to my ears Pound is skittering along this edge. (I'm still reading this book.)
