Blogging about Poetry in August 2012

Last month, I began shifting or rather focusing my poetry interests to concentrate on issues that my students would be covering. Moving forward, that could mean that I'll post less entries on contemporary poems and focus more on the somewhat older, more prevalent pieces that we're thinking about in class. But then, I suppose it's also likely that I could use my blogging time to escape classroom concerns opting to blog about writers and writings that come up less frequently in classroom discussions.  

I was pleased to finally complete and publish two lists of anthologies featuring poetry here. I also enjoyed beginning to develop a series of interrelated lists on many of the poems that I'll cover with students this semester.
