The Continental Review, the first exclusively video-only forum for contemporary poetry and poetics on the web, has just gone live. Curated by Nicholas Manning, an Australian poet living in Paris, this site is a continuously updated collection of video readings, video reviews and video interviews of and about contemporary poetry and poetics. For the launch, videos by these poets are featured:
Noah Eli Gordon
Joshua Marie Wilkinson
It is hoped that The Continental Review, with its videos available simultaneously on the website and via YouTube, signals a new approach in the communication and reception of contemporary poetry and poetics by means of new media.
