GIRL SINGING! WHILE DOVEGLION ROARS AND SOARS!
Synchronicity is frequently interesting. Over at John Bloomberg-Rissman's, more and more poets are singing more and more, extending the aria I was moved to release after reading Jose Garcia Villa's poem "Girl Singing".
And so, how very apt, that yesterday I received a copy from Penguin Classics of the just-released DOVEGLION: COLLECTED POEMS of Jose Garcia Villa, Edited by John Cowen and with an introduction by (Meritage Press author) Luis H. Francia. This is the book for which I'd hoped the recovery project The Anchored Angel would help raise interest among publishers. Well, it's great and it's here! It's a major literary (and socio-political) event....and you will be blessed should you check it out.
