March 2002
Plagiarist.com Updates Newsletter - Volume 1 Number 2
-----------------------------------------------------

We had over 125,000 page views since our last newsletter
in February 2002.

The archive now contains 4,276 poems and 187 authors.

-----------------------------------------------------

NEW ARTICLE 
The third installment of our series, "The Art of Writing
Poetry," has been posted.  You can read "How Hard Could
It Be?" about getting started writing poetry here:

http://www.plagiarist.com/articles/?artid=7

New articles will be posted approximately once a month,
and we welcome your ideas for future articles.

-----------------------------------------------------

ALSO IN OUR "ARTICLES" SECTION
We're featuring Rainer Maria Rilke's "Letters to a Young
Poet." The first three letters are online now - and
we'll be adding one every Sunday until all ten are up.

FIVE-SEVEN-FIVE: HAIKU! 
We added poems from the royal triumvirate of haiku -
Basho, Buson, and Issa.

There are multiple translations of some of the poems,
and as a special bonus, we'd like to feature some of
your haiku in a feature we're running with Buson's
eleven poems that begin with the same first line, 'The
short night--'. Check the link below for more details:

NEARLY 1,500 NEW POEMS ADDED 
Updates in March include more from Akhmatova, Berryman's
complete 77 Dream Songs (and many more from His Toy, His
Dream, His Rest) as well as a bunch from Allen Ginsberg,
classics from Homer and Ovid, the collected poems of
William Butler Yeats, and many many poems from Delmore
Schwartz and Robert Service.

Many other poems have been posted as well, including all
of your submissions and most requests that we were able
to fill.

-----------------------------------------------------

EASIER LINKING AND NAVIGATION 
You may have noticed the "easier" URLS above.  Now if
you're searching for a poet or poem, you can simply type
the poet or poem's name after 
"http://www.plagiarist.com/poetry/".  

If there is more than one selection, you'll be given a
list of options. The system isn't perfect, but usually
if we have a poet in the archive, you can use the
"simple" URL string to find them, or link to a poem or
poet.

POEM OF THE MONTH
This month's poem is "For The Dead" by Adrienne Rich 
(1929-):

http://www.plagiarist.com/poetry/?wid=3887

Rich was chosen by W.H. Auden to be the 1951 Yale Series
of Younger Poets Award winner. Her first two books, "A
Change of World" (1951), and "The Diamond Cutters and
Other Poems" (1955) were very well received and earned
her much critical acclaim.

In the 1960s, Rich's work shifted dramatically towards
more politically charged and feminist-minded themes.
"For The Dead" is from her 1973 book "Diving Into The
Wreck".

SITE REDESIGN IN PROGRESS 
We're currently in the process of a complete site
overhaul.  The new site will be less cluttered and even
easier to use.  The new design will debut sometime in
April, and while we're working we welcome your
suggestions.  Just e-mail: feedback@plagiarist.com and
your voice will be heard!

-----------------------------------------------------

WE'D LIKE TO THANK... 
Thanks to everyone who has been submitting poems:

http://www.plagiarist.com/poetry/submit.php

Your submissions are the life's blood of this site, and
they are certainly appreciated.

WE WANT YOU! 
In the spirit of building an online poetry community,
we're currently soliciting essays and criticism about
either a single poem, or essays regarding biographical
information about individual poets.  E-mail:
articles@plagiarist.com for more information, or if you
have an article or an idea for a critical essay.

-----------------------------------------------------

Feel free to let us know how we're doing: e-mail
feedback@plagiarist.com (or use the feedback form on our
website).

There's still lots more to come, with National Poetry
Month (April) right around the corner.

That's it for this issue.  We'll write back again next
month with more updates.

Yours,

   -- Jough Dempsey, Editor Plagiarist.com

If you've read all of this, was anyone else disappointed
by this year's Oscars?  I'm all for Halle and Denzel,
but did "A Beautiful Mind" really deserve Best Picture?
