The Latest In Poetry, Philosophy, & Animals
Just a few updates from the three main areas of my life these days:
Poetry: I've got a new-ish poem in the brand new journal, American Chordata. It's called STORIES (II) and is dedicated to Mark Strand. You can find it on page 87 of the e-journal.
I've also been rereading Anna Akhmatova's work, with a new enthusiasm. Here's an excerpt:
Philosophy: There's a fantastic new book out on suicide by Simon Critchley. Gorgeously written, it explores the philosophical, literary, and political climate surrounding the notion of suicide, and weaves together so many different perspectives and factoids. I was really happy to help research and collect some of the material for the project.
With love, from Brooklyn.
