I didn’t quite meet my reading goals for April — fiction was not a feature on my reading list. But I still read some amazing books.
Audre Lorde, The Collected Poems of Audre Lorde (I only read two poetry collections in April, but since this one is over 500 pages long and encompasses Lorde’s entire career, I don’t really think I fell down on my goal of reading a poetry collection a week.)
Poetry, April 2012 (A delightful mix of poets old and new. Congratulations to the journal for a century of great poems!)
ire’ne lara silva, furia (silva is an incredible local poet, and I couldn’t resist this collection when I saw it at BookWoman)
Dean Young, The Art of Recklessness: Poetry as Assertive Force and Contradiction (Perhaps the best treatise on poetry I have ever read. It shook me when I read it, and I haven’t stopped thinking about it.)
