I’m blogging for Best American Poetry this week!
Yesterday, I wrote about the importance of uncovering & recovering the past in Rust Belt poetry. Today, I continued my discussion of the aesthetics of ruins by looking at how post-pastoral and baroque poetics can represent our current economic and environmental crisis.
Later in the week, I’ll be talking about Plath & Sexton, and posting a few interviews with new poets I admire. Please take a look!
