« On Two Versions of Robert Creeley's "Self-Portrait" by Daniel Nester | Main | A Poetics Prosody Commonplace Post by Daniel Nester »

September 14, 2011


There is justice in this world after all. Greg McBride was a "winner" before contests were invented. His poetry is brilliantly heart struck and alive with intelligence. I love the photos of the young Greg here also. INNISFREEPOETRYJOURNAL(Greg's literary magazine)is a contribution to American Letters. And Greg is a contribution to poetry. Thanks Terence for this notice.

I echo Grace. This is a wonderful poem - I can't wait to read the whole book.

And I feel that confluence: Greg is a new friend, and Liam...well, Liam, god rest your difficult, ornery, tactless, bombastic, lovely and much-loved soul. We all miss you.

Lawyer turned poet?! I look forward to reading his book. God damn, Liam is beautiful in that video.

One of the great and obvious benefits of the New American Poetry and of this website is in being made aware of poets whose work one might not encounter otherwise. For me, this post is a perfect example. I shall be reading more of Greg McBride's work, that is for sure.

Also, I did enjoy Liam's encounter with Bill O'Reilly.

I thank you for all this pleasure, Terence.

Once again Winch, you enlighten, engage, and generally elevate the conversation about contemporary poetry. Thanks.
