Poetry Book Club Selection for June

After much pondering and reading of reviews, I've decided to select Paul Muldoon's book Horse Latitudes for this month's book club selection. I picked this for several reasons.

1) He's an Irish Poet and the only modern Irish poet I've read much of is Eavan Boland, so I'd like a reference point.

2) The book includes formal poetry, including a crown of sonnets. (Sigh!)

3) I've already read Ed Bok Lee's book.

If you want to participate, pick up and read Muldoon's book by June 21st. On June 21st, I'll post a discussion post and we can dissect his book. I look forward to reading with you all!
