Ange Mlinko on the Emily Dickinson Archives January 14, 2014: At The Nation, Ange Mlinko weighs in on Emily Dickinson's appearances in archives, and on Jen Bervin and Marta Werner's Gorgeous Nothings. From The Nation-- I can’t quite get past the irony of an Internet archive treating us to the unmediated Dickinson: it’s more hologram than holograph. At the very moment that we are reaching for [...] by

Each month we ask Poetry’s contributors to share a book—or several—that held their interest recently. Here are some recommendations from the poets and writers in our [...] by

Michael Robbins on Imagination, Ahoy! September 10, 2013: Michael Robbins considers imagination and contemporary poetry at this week's Chicago Tribune! For evidence of what contemporary poetry can do when it's not content to wallow in competence, I turn to Ange Mlinko's new collection, "Marvelous Things Overheard" (Farrar, Straus and Giroux). The merely competent should study Mlinko's work with [...] by

Just Saying: On Rae Armantrout’s Latest Book April 18, 2013: 1. I opened Just Saying for the first time to the second poem, “Instead.” I was immediately struck by the first section, which reads: To each his own severance package. The Inca hacked large stones into the shapes of nearby peaks. After this it jumps to a new section about the non-existence of ghosts; the third [...] by

Ange Mlinko Reviews Leonard Barkan’s New Book on Poetry & Painting March 18, 2013: Ange Mlinko, perhaps non-ruffled after Carol Muske-Dukes's critique of her "re-track" of Adrienne Rich, has published a piece at LARB on Leonard Barkan’s Mute Poetry, Speaking Pictures, which asks the question, "Why do painters sometimes wish they were poets--and why do poets sometimes wish they were painters?" Mlinko writes: [...] by

Lynette Roberts: ‘Pastoral ding-dong is out’ February 15, 2013: If you’ve been keeping up with Poetry over the past two years, you perhaps weren’t surprised to see Ange Mlinko write about Lynette Roberts for our “Enthusiasms” section in this month’s issue. Back in October 2011, Poetry published Mlinko’s “Cantata for Lynette Roberts”: Want to read some Lynette Roberts for yourself? [...] by

Ange Mlinko Looks at Adrienne Rich’s Later Poems: Selected and New February 4, 2013: Last week the Nation posted Ange Mlinko's review and assessment of Adrienne Rich's Later Poems: Selected and New and Rich's impact on the latest generation of feminists poets. But when it comes to compositional influence, "Impact" might be too strong a word. "Meh" might be better. Mlinko survey's Rich's career, beginning with her winning the [...] by

Ange Mlinko Discusses Robert Duncan at The Nation September 25, 2012: Keeping up with all things Duncan, we take a look at Ange Mlinko's article on Robert Duncan at The Nation. Mlinko begins by describing the peculiar gaze Duncan developed after an accident at the age of 3 when he "slipped in the snow in Yosemite while wearing sunglasses against the glare; they shattered, and the injury resulted in [...] by

Code Coda April 25, 2011: The letter to the New York Times Book Review that Ange Mlinko mentions in her post caught my eye too, but for different reasons. “Give me code cracking any day” wrote the letter writer, Allen Benn, in response to David Kirby's review of David Orr's new book of criticism, Beautiful and Pointless. Benn then went on to say that, for example, [...] by
