1. Dodie Bellamy's Belladodie brand new blog is indeed as good, smart, and necessary as you thought it would be when you sighed to yourself, if only Dodie Bellamy would start blogging. This week, the talk's about Ariana's Coeur de Lion (check the link below), which has been getting a lot of well-deserved airtime. There's a toothsome thoughtful comment from David Rylance, whom I had not before come across in blogland, that appears as a post. Great thoughts on Ariana, Chelsey Minnis, the female body's bondage to "ugly feelings."
2. I am rereading Hannah Arendt's On Violence, which gives me fits, paroxysms, brainstorms, and sometimes inflames the bratty superiority of baby boomer offspring. That latter, I'm keeping in check, but the rest has me gunning for a forum on hyperbolic violence in women's poetry. Will probably run it over at Delirious Hem. I'll sometime soon go harvesting participants in those circles I frequent, but if you're curious, do get in touch.
