In this Age of Internet and Blog…

I don’t know all the specifics, but Jerome Rothenberg’s site, whether called Poems and Poetics or Jacket2, is the place to go for all things poetry. I’ve modeled my blog on Jerome Rothenberg’s, and his (mission? vision?) statement below speaks for me:

“In this age of internet and blog the possibility opens of a free circulation of works (poems and poetics in the present instance) outside of any commercial or academic nexus. I will therefore be posting work of my own, both new & old, that may otherwise be difficult or impossible to access, and I will also, from time to time, post work by others who have been close to me, in the manner of a freewheeling on-line anthology or magazine. I take this to be in the tradition of autonomous publication by poets, going back to Blake and Whitman and Dickinson, among numerous others.”
