Recommended Reading

Poet Gretchen Steele Pratt is blowing up in 2009-2010. Links to her poetry online here, here, here, here. And information about her forthcoming book, One Island, here.

I've interviewed the author on more than one occasion. Absurdly, she has no notion that even the title of that book (not to speak of the poems themselves) aspires to the highest peak of allegorical/metaphorical Truth. Imagine: a poet who doesn't even have a clue how good she is.

I'd rather be Beatrice than Dante any day.
