A Footnote to "Les Troubadours de HappenStance"

08/03/2008

“Things often move slowly in the poetry world!” said I. Do you think if we rechristened poetry “slow books” it might become as vaguely trendy as the slow food and cittaslow movements? But then even vague trendiness is probably not what poetry needs. Remember, it was once the new rock ‘n’ roll. Now, it’s The Guardian‘s new selling point (for a week or so, at least)*.

*See the footnote to this excellent piece by Sean O’Brien.

And, despite my sarcastic tone, a genuine hooray for The Guardian‘s free booklets (except the Great Interviews series)!
