I know I've been talking a lot about myself lately, and I swear I'll battle me down and let some theatre get a look-in. But permit me one more indulgence: today in the post, as if on cue to remind me that I am more than a novelist or even a crrritic, I received the latest issue of Agenda, a wonderful UK poetry magazine. It's a substantial issue (288 pages), A Reconsideration of Rainer Maria Rilke, and it includes an essay and two translations of mine. I'm thrilled: I'm in wonderful company with, among many other luminaries, writings by Michael Hamburger, David Brooks, John Burnside, Phillippe Jaccottet, Yves Bonnefoy and even Friedrich Nietszche. And, quite aside from my own contributions, it looks like a must-read for anyone interested in this great lyric poet.
