Blogging about Poetry in July 2011

Looking back, I was more active blogging about poetry than I initially thought. I finally made time to write about spoken word poetry a little more than I had in the past, which is good. I also tracked down and posted links to some early poems by Langston Hughes that were initially published in Poetry. Locating Hughes in early issues of Poetry also led me to Gwendolyn Brooks and Margaret Walker's presence in the magazine.
