In this feature our master of ceremonies provides reviews,  news, and notes from the world of poetry.

For this edition, Charlie reviews the book:

  • The Insanity of Empire

A new collection of poems by Robert Bly in which he discusses the Iraq War and the "ominous implications" of the steps taken by G.W. Bush's administration. The book is a collection of work, some consisting of relevant poems drawn from his Vietnam era book, "The Light Around the Body", (a National Book Award winner), and some new work specifically addressing "the rapacious soul" and its greedy longings.
