So the other day I linked to Ange Mlinko’s Seidel piece at The Nation website, where she comes down pretty hard on Frederick Seidel, as well as a number of critics who have praised him. It was just a snippet link, because I don’t know the first thing about Seidel or his work, but I thought her piece was interesting in its own right, and so I passed it along. Since then, I’ve been reminded that the best solution for un-acquaintance with a subject is acquaintance, and so here then are several Seidel-related links for your weekend-
Seidel’s author page at Macmillan is loaded with audio.
“Hell on Wheels” by Christian Lorenzten; this was one of the reviews with which Mlinko took issue.
“Poem by the Bridge at Ten-Shin” by Frederick Seidel
