Lynx: Poetry from Bath:5

Issue 5, March 1998

Editorial: Douglas Clark

This is an occasional magazine with a core of critical articles on poetry. Supplemented by a list of the poets whose work is available in this Webspace. A section of poems is added. Few poems will be published and it is intended to maintain the highest quality. What this magazine is really about is articles and writers are invited to submit if they have some point to make. This is not an academic journal and stress lies on readability. The remit is the world of poetry in the broadest sense. Submissions or comments should be sent to

A legendary Bob Dylan concert is documented by Peter Stone Brown, Ernest Slyman adds a crisp piece of humour, Fred Beake discusses Sylvia Plath and also supplies a chapter from his forthcoming book on H.D. I meander on about various things that have caught my eye.

There are poems from John D.Porter, Ken Wolman, Bill Griffiths, Douglas Clark and translations from Jon Corelis and Fred Beake. I have, as usual, appended my summary of British and Irish URLs.

`Lynx: Poetry from Bath' was selected for Suite 101 by Jaimes Alsop of The Alsop Review, Consulting Editor (Poetry).
