The poetics of sincerity

...is front and centre in this piece on Roethke and James Wright. (From Maud Newton)

I've stuck to easy reading today, skimming over blogs and through short articles that require little concentration. Yes, yesterday's drill and hammer deconstruction across the street turned into a full blown demolition. By nightfall the building should be gone. That's a good thing. The noise is cutting into my ability to think and it's freaking out my cat.

Check out Zukofsky for a different (and I think more meaningful) approach to sincerity. There's a bit here.

hey brenda, there has been some really interesting stuff on sincerity regarding the new Coldplay record. Check Carl Wilson's Zoilus blog if you are interested.
