The Alice Notley Constellation

This Saturday morning was blissfully spent reading & listening & roaming the Alice Notley Constellation, which started with a symposium back in May 2008 at Birbeck College’s Contemporary Research Center and went nova with the addition of blogs & videos. Don’t miss this superb celebration of one of our very best poet’s work:

— a range of videos of Alice reading can be found on the Openned website, here.

— a range of writings by and on Notley can be found on Intercapillary Space, here. The TOC is worth reproducing in toto:
