By Far The Best Poetry Journal Out There

  • Apr 5, 2011
  • by
The older I get, the more am I fond of poetry. This is partly due to my increasing appreciation of this literary/artistic form, and partly with my increasing vexation with short fiction and literature as it has been published in recent years. It seems to me that poets are increasingly the ones who take chances with subject matter and form, while short stories for instance increasingly feel like cafeteria food - despite all the supposed outward differences, most stories increasingly "taste" the same. Consequently, I have started paying more attention to poetry in various fiction journals, and have eventually come across "Poetry" journal. What I found there immensely impressed me. The journal consistently publishes some really high-quality poems. The poems invariably explore the depths of this genre; they are fresh and oftentimes provocative without being programmatic. The journal also frequently publishes translations of foreign-language poems. This practice is much more prevalent in European poetry journals, and it's good to see it on this side of the Atlantic as well. There are also frequent critical essays on all aspects of poetry. In other words, this is one of the best and most original poetry journals that you could ever hope to come across. If you love poetry, you will not go wrong with subscribing with it. I'd just suggest that you shop around a bit for the best subscription deal.
