Here we are again, happy as can be!
New iteration of the old site - and it was a process, which I have repeated, though with differences. All that was there is still there, still interconnected, but with new URLs (modernpoetry/archive/URL). I am amazed looking back at it at the critical material I had digested and responded to. I don't often feel pride, but I do over that. Not sure I can repeat it, or would want to - and aren't there people somewhere paid academic or librarian salaries to do such things? Well, I guess they're not so so foolish.

I may add more stuff, to include more pointers to what there is at present that's worthwhile. I welcome suggestions. I need suggestions. I need feedback, corrections, updates etc. Please!

The image is the view from the station platform in Bishops Stortford, waiting for the London line (Cambridge line it's a brick wall - say no more!) I hope it gives a sense of what a mess, but yet some promise there. The place I think we're all in.
