Coming soon to your poetry slam

Our resident poet and, oh yeah, web manager Dale Hobson shared this link on our Facebook page today. It’s a story from NPR about some of the more exciting poetry expected to be published in the coming year. What really caught my eye was the Frank Bidart volume, Metaphysical Dog: Poems. Probably very little to do with dogs in this new book from one of our country’s most revered poets, but the dog got me.

Also reminded me of a longstanding favorite collection edited by Clarkson professor, poet, translator and occasional Readers & Writers co-host, Joe Duemer. It’s called Dog Music and I still keep it on the shelf above my desk so I can open it from time to time.

As always, your suggestions encouraged and welcome. Which poets, particularly living poets, are among your favorites?
