Gabriel Gudding

Check out this blog by Gabriel Gudding; he seems super smart on poetry theory and teaching. I just bought his book, "A Defense of Poetry," a week ago, and though I enjoy some of the vulgar humor, some of it still seems too opaque to me. I don't get the title poem at all, other than it seems like some parody of Zufosky or language poetry. Still, I think once I settle down and concentrate, I'm going to enjoy it. Here's a link to him reading some poetry. He has a book coming out in Dalkey Archive in 2008 that sounds cool, a travelogue of poetry and non-fiction about ravelling the highways. Dalkey Archive is the best press ever; check them out at
