Maryann Corbett, "Mid Evil" at LWoM

Lady Word of Mouth is pleased to announce a new page featuring poet Maryann Corbett's book of poems, Mid Evil. The collection came out some months ago, having won the Richard Wilbur Award. See Mid Evil here. The great Lady needs minions, servitors, and willing hearts to share the word!


  1. Please note that I have had to move and retitle my blog:

    1. Marly, the change was forced by a complicated, university sponsored Gmail access problem.

    2. Oh. One of those sorts of things! It's too bad. Shall catch up with you soon.

  2. Thanks to everybody who helped share on twitter, Facebook, and elsewhere. So far we have had the best of luck on Facebook with 13 direct shares and some re-postings. Thank you! Click to take a peek at one of the Facebook posts.


Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
