Hats off to the newest sites dedicated to reviewing

...Canadian poetry: Northern Poetry Review and PoetryReviews.ca.

I plan to spend the weekend reviewing poetry as well, but in a less formal way. Tomorrow morning I'll read some Szymborska before I head outdoors to paint. I'll sit in the rocks and review the words. The world. I'll work in oil. I'll begin with a basic palette.

See you on Monday.

Hi Brenda,

Thank you for mentioning PoetryReviews.ca. I hope you continue to enjoy the site.

Brenda Schmidt said...

Yes, Ken, Szymborska certainly kick starts my thinking.

Congratulations on a great site, Eric. I've added it to my links and will visit often. I really like the "Review Categories" list. In addition to being a practical way of categorizing the reviews, as the reviews grow in number I suspect the list will, to a certain extent, reveal each publisher's preferences. I look forward to seeing if this will be the case.

I LURV Szymborska! I have a great collection of hers in the original Polish with English on the other side.

Ooh, I must get my hands on a collection like that. So far I just have the one book of hers.
