- Milton's 400th Anniversary. Warning: Robert Pinsky's essaylet is actually kinda bad, but he quotes Pound and DuBois a lot, so on average, it's all right.
- The ongoing saga of Franz Kafka's papers. Because if anybody knows what it's like to negotiate with a recalcitrant party, it's the state of Israel.
- Lawrence Ferlinghetti's "Baseball Canto":
Watching baseball, sitting in the sun, eating popcorn,
reading Ezra Pound,
and wishing that Juan Marichal would hit a hole right through the
Anglo-Saxon tradition in the first Canto
and demolish the barbarian invaders.
- Frank O'Hara, ON SEEING LARRY RIVERS’ WASHINGTON CROSSING THE DELAWARE AT THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART. Simply beautiful.
- Ron Silliman reading The Alphabet. I've preordered my paperback for the end of September. It's got more pages than Ulysses!
