After a delay of some months owing to printer-related problems, the Spring 2010 edition of Poetry Salzburg Review has now been published. Another bumper issue with some 180 pages of poetry, reviews and essays, it notably includes work from several poets based in Ireland.
PSR is always an intriguing read, often inspiring in unexpected ways. This time I particularly look forward to reading new poems from Joanne Limburg, Paula Meehan, Pascale Petit, Will Stone and the recepient of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for poetry, Rae Armantrout.
'Live the Life', my contribution to Poetry Salzburg Review 17, is essentially a found poem. It was composed using the script of Jean-Luc Godard's film 'Vivre Sa Vie', in particular the sequence that details life in prostitution in 1960s Paris.
