please don’t be over!
this and into the field jacket2 are soul food for contemporary poetry lovers—this format is terrific, as i love the themed, salon style presentation (not washed and blown out, you know what I mean). doin’ god’s work, folks-keep it up!!!!
Indispensable resource for contemporary poetry.
I continue to marvel at the breadth and depth of this archive kept at the University of Pennsylvania by Professor Al Filreis and his friends and colleagues at the Kelly Writers House. Now on i-tunes, too!
Looking forward to more...
PennSound have a library of poets present and past and I am looking to hear more of it on iTunes.
