« New from the Pitt Poetry Series: THE STATE OF THE ART A Chronicle of American Poetry, 1988-2014 | Main | Monday Comic by Nin Andrews »

March 20, 2015


I LOVE THIS POST! Like many others have probably done, I took down the volume and reread "Being Pharaoh" then other favorites in the book, then other volumes. What a great way to spend the morning. Thank you Amy for a terrific week. I hope you will consider a return engagement.

Amy, it's been an excellent week of posts, for which many thanks -- and all the more so for the meticulous attention you have given to BAPs past. Your words brought back many happy memories of working with the guest editors you name (Ammons, Howard, Tate, Hass, Young, et al) and the pleasure of discovering poems in magazines that make me want to perpetuate them.

I happen to owe a great debt to librarians, who educated me through grade school and high school. It's important work. Thanks, too, for that. -- DL
