Two poems in the Notre Dame Review

I have two poems in Notre Dame Review 25 (Winter/Spring 2008). The poems are entitled “Shade” and “Red Horse.” It’s a good issue, and also includes work by Charles Simic, Frank Rogaczewski, Mary Jo Bang, numerous other poets, and a fair smattering of book reviews and criticism. An Editor’s Note states that NDR has been publishing more and more criticism lately, and that this issue is something of a criticism issue, which can only be a good thing. Take a look at their nd[re]view website for ordering information (or just to check it out), or write to: Notre Dame Review, 840 Flanner Hall, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN 46556. Single copies are US$8, a one-year subscription is $15.

The Lakes of Coma (hasn’t gone away)

The Lakes of Coma
MICHAEL S. BEGNAL
(Six Gallery Press)

First collection, I think, for this Irish-American poet.... Theres a cool post-beat kind of feel to a lot of the work here but without the lazy mannerisms that such a style often implies.... Michael Begnal is a talented young poet and worth watching out for.Tony Frazer, Shearsman
