The esteemed literary publisher New Directions has revived its series of poetry pamphlets, and the first four contributions look stellar: Eliot Weinberger, Lydia Davis, Susan Howe, and others are involved. A bit more on the series:
New Directions is happy to announce the publication of a new series of PoetryÂ Pamphlets, a reincarnated version of the â€śPoet of the Monthâ€ť and â€śPoets of theÂ Yearâ€ť series James Laughlin published in the 1940s, which brought out suchÂ eclectic hits as William Carlos Williamsâ€™sÂ The Broken Span, Delmore Schwartzâ€™sÂ poetic playÂ Shenandoah, John Donneâ€™sÂ Some Poems and a Devotion, and Yvor Wintersâ€™sÂ Giant Weapon, among many others. The New Directions PoetryÂ Pamphlets will highlight original work by writers from around the world, as well asÂ forgotten treasures lost in the cracks of literary history.
