"The History of Modern Poetry Is the History of Publishing"



Blogger Ernesto said...

I keep telling my students that we writer types need to become fluent in other languages besides "mere" writing: graphic and editorial design, marketing, electronic publishing, book binding, distribution.

Most of my students write but are too afraid to show it. Some of them have stacks of manuscripts hidden in secret drawers. Others have manuscripts lost in editor's drawers, forever waiting publication.

I was thinking about the debate about New Directions, its publishing history, the gender (and, methinks, race/class/ethnic origin issue) of who actually gets published.

The history of literature is the history of what gets published, indeed.
