Now Reading

After a long spring semester, I'm finally getting back into a reading and writing scheduel. Here's what, on and off, I'm dipping into:

The Pound Era by Hugh Kenner
O My Land, My Friends (Selected Letters of Hart Crane)
Echolalia by Deborah Bernhardt
Shattered Sonnets Love Cards . . . by Olena Kalytiak Davis
Richard Ellman's biography, Joyce
White Buildings

Not much straight up poetry on this list, so if anyone has any recommendations, I'm all ears. I'm looking for something dense, sound-driven, playful, orphic. If my pantheon includes Hopkins, Celan, Crane, Mullen, and Volkman, who would you suggest?

The Pound Era is one of my favorite books. Kenner is a genuis.

Yea, I love Christian Bok. I've been into Eunoia for a while, now.
