Rae Armantrout in the New Yorker!
Startling occurrence: Rae Armantrout has a poem in the New Yorker! It is entitled "The Ether" and is on page 74 of the May 22, 2006 issue. It is a sensitive and mercurial piece. Can we now hope for a more varied presentation of American poetry from the magazine? Since so many "general" readers get their idea of poetry from the poems published in the New Yorker, it would be nice if it was more democratic, actually representative of the "scene."
