You're wondering how you'll notice? Well, you'll notice when I come back. I'm off to rest, read, and re-group; when I return, I have a class on "Teaching Poetry" to prep and lead, which should prompt a variety of postings, and a new version of my usual "Reading Poetry" course as well. New books all around--it should be interesting.
On thing that my immersion in romance fiction has done, oddly enough, is give me a new appetite for poems, if not necessarily for poetry criticism. I'm packing Christian Bok's Eunoia and Lawrence Joseph's Codes, Precepts, Biases, and Taboos along with the swoonier material. We'll see how they measure up!
