...in two disparate categories!
1. It's time for me to start pre-planning for the MFA Craft & Theory course I'm teaching in Spring 07. Yes, I am getting an early start, but I want to actually read the books before assigning them. The topic I've chosen is Poetry of the Body, and I want a diverse group of readings, both creative and critical. I don't want to just assign my favorites, so I'd love some blogospherical input. I'm looking for poems (and essays about poems) that deal with the body in health and in crisis: desire, disability, disease, you name it. I'm particularly interested in new books, and in need of some MALE authors to create a balance. If your book, or your best friend's book, fits the bill, don't be shy or feel like you're bragging; let's hear about it. Input is very, very welcome, and much appreciated.
2. On a fluffier note, I've decided to go back to netflix, and can't find the lame hard copy of my old queue. (Every time I read that sentence I keep thinking it says "lamé hard copy", which doesn't sound lame at all.) If there are movies I need to add--especially ones from the last year--please let me know! I have been shamefully remiss in the film department.
