For this week’s #TBT we’re looking back to spring 2002 and David Kirby’s review of The Selected Larry Levis (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2000), in the essay “Songs of Myself: The Poems of Norman Dubie and Larry Levis.” The current issue of The Southern Review features posthumous poetry by Levis–which will be featured in the 2016 collection The Darkening Trapeze: Last Poems (Graywolf)–alongside work by his friends, colleagues and students. Read the essay, and check out the current issue today.
This week we’re revisiting the summer 2005 issue of The Southern Review and Jacqueline Kosolov’s “Why Plant Bougainvillea.” The poem later appeared in VAGO, published by Lewis-Clark Press in 2007.
For this week’s #TBT we’re going back to summer 2006 and “Man Receives Letter,” by Peter Gordon. Like what you read? The story was the title story in Gordon’s 2009 collection (Red Hen Press) and he has a new story, “Elevator Rides,” in the current issue of The Southern Review.
