I’ve bookmarked the Alexander and Duhamel poems.

When you think of how many great poems have been written about old stuff found in museums (Auden, Rilke), it’s natural to think that movies, so rich in images, sound effects and dialogue, would inspire some good poems. I think Gioia comes pretty close with “In Chandler Country” since so much about the noir-ish Chandler novels made it over to the big screen and of course Chandler created Philip Marlowe, played by Bogie, Mitchum, Gould.

First of all, thank you for sending the great Dana Gioia Raymond Chandler poem. And second, I will be visiting your site all the time now for the Poetry+Pop Music content. I love the top post showing the relationship between sonnets and songs like "All Along the Watchtower," "Fortunate Son," and "Pretty Saro." Good stuff.
