But then the AWP panel will be specifically about poetry reviewing--why and how it's done. I'm often asking poetry publicists what a review means to them--does it help sell books in a meaningful way? Then I wonder what other reviewers think. To what extent are poetry reviews there to keep the art form in line? What's the point of a negative review?
I'm curious whether readers of this blog read many reviews, especially of poetry, and whether they write them, either on blogs or for print or online lit mags or newspapers or wherever. Why do you do it--reading or writing?
I'm groggy today--it's just too early, no matter what time it is. So no album today. I'm too grumpy to listen to music. ugh. Tomorrow is my birthday. Talk to you then.
