From the Archives (of someone else)

Here is a lovely article from Stephen Burt in the Boston Review, issue May/June 2009, featuring our own Joe Massey.

Burt ventures an analysis of contemporary poetry and what we should expect from it in the next several years.

Burt, the Boston Review, and Massey are all worthwhile diversions, to say nothing of occupations.

While you're visiting us, why don't you take a moment to purchase Joe's book. You won't regret it.
