Listed below are links to weblogs that reference "As a writer, all bets were off." A eulogy for Eleanor Ross Taylor by Ross Taylor:


I forgot to list my own reminiscence! Originally written in September, 2009, it was published on 17 December of that year:

See also an omnibus by Kate Daniels which includes a discussion of LATE LEISURE: "Bombs in Their Bosoms"
Kate Daniels, THE SOUTHERN REVIEW; Autumn 1999;

For an omnibus that includes a discussion of LATE LEISURE, see "Bombs in Their Bosoms" by Kate Daniels, originally published in the SOUTHERN REVIEW, Autumn 1999.

There's also a wonderful interview with Mrs. Taylor by Jean Valentine in the SOUTHERN REVIEW, Vol. 33, No. 4, Autumn 1977.

In the latest news from those lucky enough to have been invited into Mrs. Taylor's circe, Emerson has a poem on POETRY DAILY-- her new book, SECURE THE SHADOW (LSU Press).

A wonderful new find! Robert Mazzocco writing in the NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS about Mrs. Taylor:

Wonderful news for those who admire the work and person of ERT!--BLACKBIRD will soon be making available the audio content of the AWP panel held about her poetry! Hooray, and thank you again, David and Nin!

P.P.S. I meant Post #15!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
