  1. Impressive list of authors, as usual, but I especially like the experimental approach that distinguish many of this season’s poets. Should be an eye-, ear- and mind-opening series of readings.

  2. Campbell’s poems (at least the ones I read New Caribbean Poetry, ed. Miller, Carcanet Press) are accessible (in a way that, say, John Ashbery isn’t), such as “Groove” or “Repatriation”–but then he pushes poetry to the edge in “On Listening to Shabba while Reading Cesaire.” How would he read aloud parts of that poem? Should be fun!

  3. M. NourbeSe Philip is now scheduled to read Oct.24 at 4:30 pm, rm 3027, SJU. I’ll finally be able to hear her! Kudos to Professors Austen and Connolly for bringing her here! Now if only they would produce a book about Caribbean-Canadian poetry and poetics…
