National Book Critics Circle: The Practice and Purpose of Poetry
Reviewing. (Kevin Prufer, Matthew Zapruder, Craig Morgan Teicher, Nickole
Brown, Timothy Donnelly.)

Poetry books sell in small numbers, yet the poetry publishing scene is
booming with new books. Readers’ enthusiasm often takes the form of book
reviewing—in literary journals, on blogs, and in the pages of newspapers
and magazines. There’s some debate about what the point of poetry
reviewing really is: to explain esoteric writing? To keep the art form
from getting sloppy? To please the poet under consideration? In this
panel, poetry reviewers, publishers, and poets will debate these
questions.
