    I suppose I dare to say I don't like Plath or Neruda because I don't like them. Should I be worried about some academic canon police paying me a visit?

    I don't like Sylvia Plath either, she is at best mediocre.

    Katie Tempest in England has won a large (young) audience at the moment, and a large amount of poetry is performed rather than published at the moment following the resurgence of Slam Poetry in the last 15 years. Poetry magazines are still going - in the UK, Rialto and Poetry Review are still printing poems worth reading. The problem is finding collections that sustain themselves. Pamphlets have been in for the moment, and the problem is that a lot of the first collections contain extracts from the pamphlets, which browns off the purchaser who end up with duplicates.
