A round-up of recent and relatively recent news, reviews, and stuff.
- David Trinidad, author of The Late Show, co-editor of Court Green, and teacher at Columbia College in Chicago, has recently published a beautiful elegy "For Nicholas Hughes" in The International Literary Quarterly's November 2009 issue (9).
- Though I haven't yet read it, earlier this week Student Pulse published Sandra L. Meyer's "Examining Oppression Through the Lives and Stories of Sylvia Plath and Charlotte Perkins Gilman."
- Harvard professor and poet Stephen Burt published "Smothered to Smithereens: The Poetics of Motherhood" in the current Boston Review.
- On a similar note, poet and novelist Nick Laird's "Poems for a Baby" appears in today's The Guardian.
- Though I missed it at first, on 30 December 2009, Paul Taylor at The Independent published "Writers' Archives: A Sad Estate of Affairs." I suspect some of this blogs readers may take exception to his opinions on Ted Hughes' handling of affairs.
- Tune in next week for "Updates from the Archive" as I will be n Indiana.
