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.
