Big Loves: Larry Sawyer on Anne Sexton - Memoriousmag's Blog

By memoriousmag
Today's Big Loves guest is Larry Sawyer, author of Unable to Fully California (Otoliths, 2010). Big Loves: Anne Sexton. When I first came upon the lines “the virgin is a lovely number” I felt for the first time, more so than when I'd read Wallace.
Anne Sexton’s poetry is something to be caught, read at night, and her flashlight still illumines that which is most marvelous, resonant and redolent of real experience but with wild flights that reward patient readers.

X.Dells other blogs, which this body of reviewers dares not open, have titles such as The X-Spot Reader, CRUSHED BY INGSOC and Slimed X test.

A Permanent Relationship With Words: Literary Tattoos

Okidoki. Amanda Rudd (fantasy/scifi writer, crazed academic, and unrepentant geek) submits in her latest post to want to tattoo a text from Anne Sexton's poem "Rowing" on her arm. In white ink. That appears to be a new trend, or so she states. Whether that will lead to scores of leprous biker chicks or a truly fair augmentation to the lamentably poor esthetics of the natural human body remains to be seen. From our desk we would like to let Amanda Rudd, and her followers, know that anybody who tattoos a text in excess of five words from Cross On Me on any generally visible place on their body is eligible for a free copy!
