For those neophytes who expect poetry to be nothing more than a good story or pure emotion, I would point them to Muench because of what she is able to achieve with language, but I would do so with a warning. There is no doubt that Muench, who is poetry editor of ACM and a doctoral student at University of Illinois at Chicago, is an extremely talented writer. Almost every poem has an end note, a testament to her vast array of knowledge and her favorite poets Robert Desnos figures prominently in this book. As a result of this intelligence, her poems end up reading like formulaic notes from her studies. We are told, as if we are good little students, what poetry is and what a poem about Robert Desnos would be, but rarely do her poems break out of the formula to create their own worlds.

"Newbie Black" Poetry Sex Pot (TV Episode ) - IMDb
Although he died at the age of twenty-five, Keats had perhaps the most remarkable career of any English poet. He published only fifty-four poems, in three slim volumes and a few magazines. But over his short development he took on the challenges of a wide range of poetic forms from the sonnet, to the Spenserian romance, to the Miltonic epic, defining anew their possibilities with his own distinctive fusion of earnest energy, control of conflicting perspectives and forces, poetic self-consciousness, and, occasionally, dry ironic wit. Although he is now seen as part of the British Romantic literary tradition, in his own lifetime Keats would not have been associated with other major Romantic poets, and he himself was often uneasy among them. Beyond his precise sense of the difficulties presented him in his own literary-historical moment, he developed with unparalleled rapidity, in a relative handful of extraordinary poems, a rich, powerful, and exactly controlled poetic style that ranks Keats, with the William Shakespeare of the sonnets, as one of the greatest lyric poets in English.

Meet the Visceral Realists: a razor-tongued, pot-smoking, self-obsessed gang of horny Mexican poets. There's Ulises Lima, a vagabond who infects his gracious hosts with scabies. And Luscious Skin, a lothario who recounts a "butt-lashing" sexual encounter over four very detailed pages. Just now published in English, the book is a fist-to-gut introduction to a deceptively powerful writer who died at age 50 in
