A Rexroth roundup ...

... from the Bureau of Public Secrets:

Ten Influential Books.

On Translating Roman Verse.

Coleridge and Zen? (This is quite fascinating, opinionated in a way that is pure Rexroth. It reminded me that my two favorite poems of Coleridge's are Frost at Midnight" and "This Lime-Tree Bower, My Prison." I agree that the Baudelaire quote at the end has a Zen-like quality, but I have always felt there was something unhealthy, even creepy, about Baudelaire. Give me a common drunk like Verlaine any day.)

The Victorian Conspiracy of Cant.
