100 YRS OF SELFIE POETICS: On Monica McClure and Edith Södergran April 7, 2014: 1. Who is the girl that gives it away, that petocha “with a little purse like a puta for cigarettes and change”? How is a lyric poem like a girl who stages for the public a private moment? Who spreads around her little book? Who brings the public into her privacy? Who thereby could be said to fake privacy? What kind of volatile [...] by

Johannes Göransson on the Ambient Maternal Narratives of Gro Dahle & Dolores Dorantes March 24, 2014: Johannes Göransson writes about Gro Dahle and Dolores Dorantes for Montevidayo. (We recently pointed to a review by Seth Abramson at HuffPo of Dahle's book, A Hundred Thousand Hours [UDP 2013], translated from the Norwegian by Rebecca Wadlinger.)

Dashes Performing ‘Working-Class Poetry’: Emily Dickinson to Johan Jönson February 11, 2014: At Actuary Lit, Beth Towle looks at what she considers to be "working-class poetry," with a needle-eye on Emily Dickinson, who also serves as an example for what Towle likes to call the “sound of interruption.” Here's some form-content connecting: The lack of autonomy is a major theme in not just working-class poetry but also in [...] by

New to the Archive August 23, 2013: We've just replenished the coffers with some valuable poem nuggets and thought Friday morning would be the perfect time to share these treats from our online archive. Ya know, just to get the weekend off on the right foot. First, it is with great pleasure that we've added this handful of poems by Philip Lamantia, filling in that surrealist [...] by

Johannes Göransson on Swedish Conceptualist Johan Jönson August 8, 2013: Our featured blogger for the month is Johannes Göransson, as you know; and he's just penned a response to Cal Bedient's much-debated essay on affect and Conceptualism for Montevidayo. Noting that the difference between the two, for Bedient, is a division of the head from the heart, Goransson writes: "Not only is this–as many people, [...] by

So while blogging this month for Harriet, I’ve stuck to my own interests and obsessions, pushing, too, toward some new thinking (as in things I’d not thought before) on poetics. That was exciting.
