Silliman's Blog

I rarely find myself agreeing unreservedly with Ron Silliman, although his blog is both essential reading and dangerously addictive for the office-hours browser (still, that's what work is for, right?). This, though (the August 13 post), is excellent. A better man than me could probably argue with it in parts, but it seems to me to make a good case both for more left-field poetry and for a plurality of poetries. Probably my only only real argument would be that some poets can function at several or even all of the levels he mentions.
