I'll be without Internet access for a few days, so I won't be able to post here. However, I'll continue to read and make notes on Paradise Lost. When I'm online again, I'll begin posting these.
I've installed moderatorial controls, but you can still comment. Comments will appear when my access returns. I've had to take this step because one of two of the "anonymouses" from the Stanza Report 2 thread (all of whom originally came to this blog from email links - strange, that...) have been posting abusive comments to various threads. Amazingly, these people have also tried to assert their own high moral ground. I've been reviewing poetry for a few years now and this is the first time I've experienced this kind of reaction. However, I stand by my comments, despite the obviously orchestrated (though anonymous) attempt to persuade me to censor them. I guess it's needless for me to say how badly that attempt reflects on all those involved.
So normal service will resume soon. April is NaPoWriMo and I plan to write lots of poetry, if I could just get more flesh on the bones of my current idea. We'll see. I also have three poetry collections to review for Magma magazine, so life is going to be busy.
