My contribution to H. L. HIx's fascinating (and, yes, dialogic) Progressive Poetics Project was posted yesterday. I was particularly happy to have a little piece of my academic work appear on the net on the same day as my reading at the Poetry Foundation with David Trinidad and our students. (More to follow soon on that!)
The project works like this: H.L. Hix takes a quote from something we've published (in my case, my academic essay on Harryette Mullen's Muse & Drudge published in Poetry and Dialogism: Hearing Over) and then asks us to write a 200 word response to it in context of Auden and Adorno's oft-quoted lines-that-sound-like-dictums about poetry. (You know: "Poetry makes nothing happen" and "To write poetry after Auschwitz is barbaric.") We are then asked us to answer the question "What must or might be said about poetry today."
You can read range of responses from many people, including Mary Ruefle, Frank Bidart, Meena Alexander, Jennifer Moxley, Carl Phillips, Frank Bidart, and a host of other poets and academics.

There's a new one posted daily. I'm in love with this project. You should go there now.
