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.

Suheir Hammad at PalFest 2009
Thanks to Marcy Newman for posting on the Literature Festival happening in sites in Palestine these days. Her blog, Body on the Line, contains full descriptions and pictures of the event, as well as Newman's own vituperative prose.
