The new issue of Poets’ Quarterly just launched late last week. I’m thrilled to have an essay published on the influence of Ezra Pound on William Carlos Williams’ and T.S. Eliot’s poetry. My essay can be read here. The magazine also published my review of Martha Collins’ latest collection of poems, White Pages, one of the most provocative, interesting books I have ever read in regards to race and class. You can read that review here. In addition, they published my review of Jim’ Davis latest collection of poems, Assumption. Davis is the editor of North Chicago Review.
Check out the complete issue. There is a wonderful interview with National Book Award finalist Stanly Plumly, an essay on what not to do when submitting your work to literary journals, and over a dozen other reviews.
