Silliman’s Blog

Ron Silliman, the 2006 Poet Laureate of the Blogosphere, provides a website of exploration, an online amusement park, that covers not only poetry but music  (John Cage, Fred Hersch, Anthony Braxton), art, linguistics, books and literature, dance (Merce Cunningham) and other worthwhile subjects.  Make no mistake, this site’s focus is poetry, poems and poets:  videos of topnotch poets reading their works, excerpts of poems, complete poems, external links for living poets, fitting remembrances of those passing on, and Ron Sillman’s own writing.  The amount of content here is overwhelming and a tribute to Sillman’s energy and  productivity.

Check out Mr. Sillman’s site, his blogroll and some of his poems.
