NY Times piece on poetry drafts!


Poetry in Action: Six contemporary poets share the process behind their poems.New York Times – August 1, 2017

Cool piece, (seems to accompany the NY Times piece on whether writers should keep their early drafts) but I wish the NY Times had included links to the finished pieces for comparison. Here are all the final drafts I could find on the web: 

Eduardo C. Corral – Ceremonial

Marie Howe – The Map

Robert Pinsky – Exile and Lightning

Mary Jo Bang – Portrait as Self-Portrait


& these apparently are not yet in the Net:

Billy Collins – Duck Blind

& Jenny Zhang – Untitled
