Further thoughts on the cultural labor of poetry and art. Not merely "is it good?," but "what has it accomplished?"...reviews of recent poetry collections; selected poems and art dealing with war/peace/social change; reviews of poetry readings; links to political commentary (particularly on conflicts in the Middle East); youtubed performances of music, demos, and other audio-video nuggets dealing with peaceful change, dissent and resistance.

Ian Mungall's Poetry Project: "Dulce Et Decorum Est" by Wilfred Owen
"Dulce et Decorum Est" by Wilfred Owen, set to music and read by my student, Ian Mungall. Though Owen's poem is from World War I, the photos range from all recent modern wars.
