cento for love April 3, 2014: written for a performance with Dohee Lee and Simon Pettet on March 28, 2014 Poetry is not for the passive. It is, as Mayakovsky knew, at its very heart tendentious. Even the love poem agitates the beloved to fall in love with the poet. Like the first time I ever heard “Crazy in Love” is the only time I’ll ever understand. Once [...] by

Perhaps Punishment Was Only About Context: New Issue of Lana Turner November 8, 2013: That subject line uses Claudia Rankine writing on Serena Williams at the 2009 US Open ("Be Angry") for issue #6 of Lana Turner, which's got in accompaniment poems by Chris Nealon ("Could I just insert here that the question concerning technology doesn’t seem / to me to be the question?"), Lauren Levin, Lyn Hejinian, Alli Warren, Jessica [...] by

What Does Somethingness Afford? June 3, 2013: [caption id="attachment_68463" align="alignright" width="500"] from “Situations 6″ by John Lucas and Claudia Rankine.[/caption] After recently being prompted by the Naropa Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, I watched Fred Moten’s lecture “An Ecology of (Eloquent) Things” on YouTube, which helped me begin to put some language [...] by

Academy of American Poets Elects Three New Chancellors January 17, 2013: The Academy of American Poets has elected three new Chancellors to their board! We at Harriet would like to congratulate Marilyn Nelson, Claudia Rankine, and C. D. Wright. "Selected by the current Board of Chancellors, Nelson, Rankine, and Wright will serve as ambassadors of poetry and advocate for the organization's programmatic work. They [...] by

Constantly Bathing in the Semantic Folds of the New Lana Turner Content November 21, 2012: Issue #5 of the always-revelatory Lana Turner is out, and contains among its gemlike wonders some poetry from Catherine Wagner (also featured maintenant at PEN, but we digress), Claudia Rankine, Sandra Simonds, Geoffrey G. O'Brien, Jackqueline Frost, Joe Luna, Jorie Graham, Douglas Piccinnini, Cole Swensen, and Daniel Tiffany; and plentiful [...] by

Ali Liebegott’s Road-Trip Interview with Claudia Rankine August 31, 2012: Remember when poet Ali Liebegott went on a road trip for The Believer and interviewed Maggie Nelson? That was just her first stop. Now she's gone on to talk with poet Claudia Rankine, and their interview has just gone up at The Believer Logger. We love this bit from their conversation, held recently in Claremont, California: BLVR: I [...] by

The Claudia Rankine Bandits February 6, 2012: These folks drove 708 miles in one day to hear Claudia Rankine read. Along the way they wrote out passages from Rankine's The End of the Alphabet, rolled them up into little scrolls, and left them in random places for strangers to find and engage with. How cool would it be to stop at a gas station for a Drumstick and find some Rankine tucked into [...] by

Poetry and race April 30, 2011: I’m kinda surprised that there hasn’t been any commentary on Harriet this month about the biggest and most heated discussion in the poetry world this spring—Claudia Rankine’s public questioning at the most recent AWP conference of Tony Hoagland’s poem “The Change.” Daisy Fried contributed a post just a few days ago that analyzed [...] by

don’t call it classical April 14, 2011: Ahem. My literary-life motto for this year is "slightly less writing and much more reading," and so I almost said no to this return-to-blogging — but having now seen Anselm's amazing nonlinear take on writing with a newborn around I'm in the mood to believe anyone can do anything, as long as it's done in an enthusiastic and a nonlinear fashion.

Controllable Git November 15, 2009: One thing that happened the other day was the memorial, at which one found the issue in which one’s article on the other one recently passed was printed. Agh! I was blogging around trying to nosedive into ashes when I saw your site: I partied with the Nakas back in Swan Valley and totally mind-melded with their pets. I changed my name to as a [...] by
