a crick in my neck

Just returned from my pilgrimage to The Bookshop in Chapel Hill. Turned in Paul Hoover's _Postmodern American Poetry_, some Derrida and Frederic Jameson. Used my in store credit and spent $29 from turning in college textbooks

and got:

1) paradise and method by Bruce Andrews
2) Aerial 9 (Bruce Andrews)
3) Rondeaux by Laura Moriarty
4) Potential Random by Keith Waldrop
5) Silence and License by William L. Fox
6) Nemesis by Lew Daly
7) Revenants by Mark Nowak
8) Giving Up The Ghost by Aaron Shurin
9) From The Other Side of the Century (edited by Douglas Messerli) The selections and format looked more interesting than the Norton anthology of Postmodern American Poetry I turned in

I was very tempted to pick up Zukofsky's "A" for $15, but I still haven't made my way through Maximus and it looked a bit overwhelming.

Still reading and enjoying Livelihood by Maurice Scully.

Now I have to deal with my neck after looking at every single book of poetry one by one at The Bookshop.

By Robert Archambeau

I began the first half of this article (Notre Dame Review #4) by mentioning some of the limits to the legendary hospitality Ireland has shown to its poets. If you arrive in Ireland from any point of departure outside of Eastern Europe, you will indeed find a public far more willing than the one you left behind to grant poets the recognition all but the most ascetic secretly crave. However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
