About my blog

The idea of this blog is to record my thoughts about poetry. I really like poetry - I write poetry and I read poetry.  On this blog I want to think about some of the fundamental questions about poetry - what it is, why we write it, what the 'writers marketplace' means for poetry. But I also want to look at these questions in the context of poems I love and poems I hate. This is largely because I know quite a few poets who don't really read any poetry, particularly older poetry, and I think that's kind of sad.
