Every time I pick up a copy of Chicago Review I learn something. They have a knack for special sections: Kenneth Rexroth, Lisa Robertson, Christopher Middleton, Louis Zukofsky, and Stan Brackhage(!) and Ronald Johnson... This time they map out British poetry, literally. But I really just like the pictures. (Click through for a preview.)

Everyone needs a little Quemadura.
"Styles of British Poetry 1945–2000," by Andrew Duncan: "AVANT-GARDE PASTORAL: fit for inscriptions on garden furniture, yet linked to memories of the avant-garde."
Chicago Review is poppin. Buy a copy.
