For a poet in the U.S., one can get the impression that academic poetry is all that is happening, all that matters in USAmerican letters. For those who crave more (you crave more don’t you?) a blog dedicated to the outsiders in poetry might be the most popular poetry blog of them all.
Kept by language poet Ron Silliman, his blog sometimes veers into the no man’s land of this school vs. that school, which can be tedious when he gets on his anti School of Quietude horse, but we get what he means and we appreciate that there is someone chronicling the outsider view of North American poetics.
We also appreciate the links he gathers and posts in large batches, though we wish sometimes they weren’t so GD long. http://ronsilliman.blogspot.com/
