John Wilson's Year of Reading 2019

The Book of the Red King is on John Wilson's booklist at First Things. Hurrah! There's a good bit of poetry on the list, including new books by Jennifer Reeser (a poet I met long ago at the Westchester poetry conference), Aaron Belz, the late Brett Foster, Diane Glancy, Laurance Wieder, and Jane Tyson Clement, who died in 2000. And more in other genres...

    1. Thanks! John Wilson is a really wide reader--I don't know how he manages to read so many books...

    2. No kidding! I can't keep up at all with what's out there!!

    3. an ocean, with an end none of us can see at once, only the horizon of our own limits!!

    4. We trawl for book-fish as we can...

    5. Hey, thanks for looking up those praise poems on "Journal of Mythic Arts." Pleasant to know someone is reading them...


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.
