Thursday Musings

Read this on Poets and Writers this morning and it made me laugh. Here’s a tidbit:

Penguin U.K. has teamed up with Match.com to introduce a dating Web site for book lovers, or for anyone, according to the publisher, who has “ever wished real life could be as romantic as a novel.” The PenguinDating site, available only to residents in the United Kingdom, hopes to offer readers “a place to meet and indulge in the age-old art of writing love letters.”

How come the Brits get to have all the fun?

Here are some links to some new poetry books. I’ve added them to my list. My list is threatening to eat me alive but I continue to feed it. Some people never learn…

The Making of a Sonnet: A Norton Anthology, ed. Edward Hirsch and Eavan

White Heat: The Friendship of Emily Dickinson and Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Brenda Wineapple (Alfred A. Knopf)

100 Essential Modern Poems by Women, ed. Joseph Parisi and Kathleen Welton (Ivan R. Dee, Publisher)

Poetry Daily posts a poem a day. I try to look at a few a week but this mornings choice struck me. I have yet to really put my finger on it but I think I like it so much because it is full of abstractions.
