News in Poetry Review: Rehema McNeil, 'Davu'
Posted by Ozymandias on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 (08:28:16)

Despite having only recently turned her attention to hip-hop, Rehema McNeil has been a mouthpiece for the streets for more than a minute. For the last few years, the Indianapolis native has performed across the Midwest as a slam poet, tweaking her tongue and whetting her words as a storyteller. With a mind for change and a strong self identity, taking her voice to rap music –– America's most popular and influential form of street poetry–– holds as the logical next step for McNeil. Link!

News in Poetry Down to/Poetry
Posted by Ozymandias on Wednesday, October 01, 2014 (05:51:48)

10:04, the new novel by the poet Ben Lerner, is a poem in the form of a novel, an intricate and difficult poem in the form of what is in many ways a straightforward story. This makes the work easy to feel and very hard to explain, because its achievements as a work of fiction—the felt truth of its plot, the depth of its main character, the incisiveness of observation, and the empathy implicit in the pacing of its narrative and thoughtful comic prose—on their own reveal little of the poetry that animates them.Link!

Reviews Book Review: 'Stone Mattress: Nine Tales' by Margaret Atwood
Posted by LostInTranslation on Sunday, September 14, 2014 (04:57:26)

Margaret Atwood’s latest story collection, “Stone Mattress,” is subtitled “Nine Tales” to signal its interest in the folkloric, the macabre and the supernatural. It includes bloodsucking, a severed but animate hand, a cruise-ship femme fatale and several victims of unusual violence, including an opportunistic suitor who may or may not get his comeuppance from an ex-girlfriend reincarnated as a mongrel dog.

News in Poetry Style over substance: three poets' attempts to master their form
Posted by Ozymandias on Sunday, September 14, 2014 (00:09:43)

Ruth Padel’s Learning to Make an Oud in Nazareth mixes details from the cultures of the Middle East with visceral imagery of the region’s conflicts and some well-worn bits of scripture. The central sequence, “Seven Words and an Earthquake”, superimposes contemporary torture techniques on to the Crucifixion. Link!

Posted by Ozymandias on Sunday, September 07, 2014 (03:04:36)

Mindful of continuity amu nnadi situates his poetry as a progression of a consciousness, "We need to eulogise our heroes or their heroic deeds, to set examples for people. We need to make heroes that people can look up to. That is, indeed, the stuff of epic; heroism, that is. It is the key to the passion we share for the arts, for it lights the fire within us, sets us on the path of pilgrimage" Link!
