“the arc from the Old to the New Poetry”

“…In fact, I also don’t buy that it’s just a sudden, right-now, thing that we’re “[i]n an era of deeply mistrusted speech.” Speech has been mistrusted since just about the time there was such a thing.”

John Gallagher on a recent essay by Tony Hoagland on “the New Poetry.” I’d like to read the original some time – sorry, no link.
