Lynx: Poetry from Bath:6

Issue 6, April 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

Tim Love contributes an intellectual piece on `Allusions' and also the story of his dealings with UK literary editors. William Oxley exploring a Greek myth detects the presence of prose amongst the poetry of recent times. Ann Skea follows up Fred Beake's article on Sylvia Plath in the previous issue. I wax egotistical with an edited version of my contributions to the British-poets mailing list debate on `Performance and Prosody'. [This mailing list may be found at the bottom of my URL summary.]

There are poems from David Hunter Sutherland, Fred Beake, Doug Tanoury, Keston Sutherland and Tim Love. I have, as usual, appended my summary of British and Irish URLs.

Details of contributors and access to all their work in the magazine is provided in the Contributors/Index Page.

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