The Agora is a very new website, with spit and polish still being applied; it will offer reviews of poetry, as well as broadsides and other publications. We like reviews, right? We bemoan the lack of reviews in our culture, we complain that the book review sections of our newspapers are shutting down, we wish for ever more discourse about emerging work? So much work, not enough thinking about the work, is that the cry? Well, let's get to work, then.

The editor, Aaron Tucker, asked me if I'd contribute some reviews, so I agreed to. The first one is about Joseph Bradshaw's This Ocean, or Oppen Series. It is part of my ongoing process of building a bridge between Portland and Toronto. Enjoy it, and check out the rest of the site.
