Chomping at the Carnival House Door: Fetisizing Freaks, Lusting For  "Monsters"
If we're politically correct literati, politicians or dutiful adult children sitting with our moms at breakfast, we won't say this out loud.  But in our heart of hearts, we know it's true: nothing turns us on, yet repels us as much as freaks or horrifies, yet titillates us as much as monsters.
Kathi Wolfe

Götterdämmerung for American Poetry?

Philip Levine's appointment as Poet Laureate of the United States reminds us that American poetry's future has never been more tenuous. He is, after all, 83 years old. Indeed, most of the living American poets who have achieved wide readership are now senior citizens.
David Alpaugh
