Coming Attraction: Back to Mark Doty
We are moving from Anne Carson to Mark Doty in my Community of Poetry Readers (COP'Rs) and School of the Arts is our text for April. I also wanted to share Doty's essay on Rilke's poem "Archaic Torso of Apollo" titled "On "Archaic Torso of Apollo." It's an essay I read in preparation for my ekphrasis workshop last month. It's an excellent essay, vintage Doty for its insight, intelligence and laugh out loud humor. Enjoy!
