Prose on Poetry

Two recent additions to prose writing on poetry worth your time: Rachel Donadio’s profile of Helen Vendler and Richard Chess’s essay on “The Poetry of Survival.” (How lucky am I to have worked with both Helen Vendler and Richard Chess?)

  1. Very lucky. 🙂 I’m not familiar with Richard Chess, but I’ve been in several of Vendler’s classes and she’s a fantastic teacher. (She even brought Seamus Heaney in for class one day, which was one of the coolest things ever.)

  2. Nancy, you’re so right–she’s a remarkable teacher. And that Heaney visit must have been great.
