Thought for the Day

Carl Spitzweg: The Poor Poet

'Much, though not all, of the vital poetry around is published by smaller presses far from the centre, while the commercial publishers too often tie themselves to hyped fads and mainstream fashions. What else should we expect? Fine poets are individualistic, living on the fringes, metaphorical and geographical, of the literary scene.'
Paul Hyland, Getting into Poetry (Bloodaxe)
