A few updates on the website/world of Amie: new blog on Bishop’s Squatter’s Children, new poem, Camel Meditation, up at Radar Poetry, and information on AWP happenings (and future readings) on my events page.
Thoughts on “Questions of Travel” in which I talk about desire for the millionth time.
In my slow journey through all of Elizabeth Bishop’s poems (I almost wrote “bones” just now, which I kind of like. In a way a poet’s poems are their bones–fossils of the lived life…), I have finally made it to her third collection, Questions of Travel. Check out my piece on “Arrival at Santos.” Here’s to a long wade through this segment of Bishop’s skeleton/body of work.
Can’t wait to teach Multigenre Scavenger Hunt online with The Loft Literary Center this summer!
I finally finished blogging about A Cold Spring! Check out my post on Bishop’s beautiful “shampoo.”
