A NOTE ABOUT A BOOK
TILL I END MY SONG ( ed. by Harold Bloom , NYC ; 2011, Harper ) ISBN 978-0-06-192305-0 , is a general poetry collection. It is not intended to be a speculative or sf/f/h poetry collection. Yet many of the poems do have speculative/sf/f/h elements and one poem, ' Space Walking ' by R. S. Thomas is a speculative poem. I am not reviewing the book but merely point to it as still another proof thatmainstream poetry is becomingg more and more open to sf.f.h.speculative motiffs and language.
