23 People Who Will Make You Care About Poetry in 2013
By Jason Diamond
Inspired by Patricia Lockwood’s poem “Rape Joke,” Jason Diamond produced for Flavorwire the list “23 People who will make you care about poetry in 2013,” a list of poets that he believes dispels the notion that “poetry is dead.”

A response and counter-list to “23 people who will make you care about poetry in 2013”
“It is this impulse to exclude, as exhibited by Diamond and Vendler and company, that compelled me to create my own list, a list of 23 poets that will not only make you care about poetry, these poets also care about you.”

I say: Read them all!

“Women poets have the unique privilege of challenging sexism and heteronormative assumptions or celebrating all that is female–its authentic essence as well as its artifice.”
