Off-Syllabus Links: Week of September 20, 2015

Here are my bookish links for the week:

The recent controversy surrounding white poet Michael Derrick Hudson getting published in this year’s Best American Poetry anthology has sparked a lot of conversations about diversity in publishing. This article by Jenny Zhang is an important perspective.

Have you been misreading Robert Frost’s most famous poem, “The Road Not Taken”? A fun read about one of America’s most famous poems.

You’ve seen a lot of Harry Potter on this blog so far. Here’s a really smart article about why exactly that is.

And finally, I am 100% with Mallory Ortberg in her call for more “cozy” versions of our favorite genres.
