NYRB slapdown

Rita Dove is not a favorite poet of mine, but her slapdown of Helen Vendler's NYRB review is pretty effective.

But -- no Sylvia Plath? I don't know what's worse, that Dove omits her, or that Vendler doesn't remark it.

... UPDATE: It is said that copyright issues prevented Plath's inclusion. Interesting if true.
