The National Book Foundation launched its new National Book Awards Poetry Blog on Monday. If you enjoy poetry then you’ll be gratified to have access to this retrospective examining more than sixty years of National Book Award-winning poetry, including a daily blog with original essays by contemporary poets on all past Award Winners in Poetry.
The blog highlights a different Award Winner each weekday and includes the original book covers, photographs of the authors, lists of the National Book Award Judges and Finalists for each year (when available), and related material and links. This will run through May, 2011. After that, the resulting archive will reside permanently on the National Book Foundation’s website.
