NOTED: The new spring issue of Talisman Journal has a special section of commentary on the work of Martha King. Online only at www.talismanmag.net

It’s a splendid issue all around including another special section on Donna de le Perriere, abundant poetry, essays, interviews, and critique. Spend some time with it.  (Do see Burt Kimmelman on Virginia Wolfe and Proust.)

Lost & Found: The CUNY Poetics Document Initiative is partnering with The Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church to celebrate their 50th Anniversary with a panel and discussion on the life and works of Paul Blackburn: poet, translator, and foundational figure of the Lower East Side poetry scene.  

Basil King will lead off the evening with a reading and reminiscence of Paul Blackburn. A roundtable moderated by Poetry Project Director Stacy Szymaszekwill follow short talks by Marcella Durand, George Economou, David Henderson, Carolee Schneemann, Simon Smith, and Robert Vas Dias on topics including his politics, his translations of Provençal troubadour verse and Julio Cortázar, and the role of the poet in shaping the city.

On Wednesday, September 28th, The Poetry Project will also host a night of readings of Paul Blackburn’s work by many poets who admire his contributions.  Basil King and Martha King will be among them. For information see www.poetryproject.org
