PoetryNow and Robert Hass

What a great resource. Frederick Seidel A great reader of poetry, try his soon to be famous "Kill Field".

In other news PoetryNow07 has Robert Hass reading with Derek Mahon. I reviewed Mahon on this blog before and Harbour Lights is a grand return to form. Hass is just so influential. When I was on holidays in Italy, I took three books by Hass, Collected Bishop, and Remembrance of Things Past. I think it was "Praise" that I lingered over longest. And we also get to hear Jane Hirshfield on the same evening. Joy. If you haven't already, there is a selected poems out on Bloodaxe that is just a treasure.
