Reads of the Week #8

First this week here’s Anthony Wilson, poet writing about Denise Levertov’s   ‘poem about a poet loving her readers enough to admit that she is not in control of the meanings they make of her poem’.

Secondly here’s Kenny Pieper on behalf of teachers everywhere asking what might we achieve if we slowed things down, covered less and learned more deeply?

Third read is about Margaret Atwood’s visit to West Point where she engaged the students on gender, politics and oppression, it’s World Women’s Day today, very appropriate.

Next is Mark Miller  Over the last couple of years, he has started talking to himself. In the car, in my house, in my classroom. Here’s why.

Finally from the Guardian: Malcolm X was killed fifty years ago, but his work lives on today.
