Paul Hoover's Responses to Shakespeare's "Sonnet 56"
Because sometimes the proper response to a poem is another poem--or fifty-six more poems, for that matter. Here, poet Paul Hoover effects the mis-en-abyme of poetic influence. Thanks to the new video poetry webzine, *The Continental Review*, for making it happen. Though the *Continental Review* is still in its early phases, and has yet to work out some of the typical bugs that come with videoizing anything (transmission quality a little sketchy, etc.), I can imagine that this will be a site that is worth returning to.
