BPJ Devotes Issue & Forum to “The Logic of Yoo”

The Fall 2011 issue of Beloit Poetry Journal is devoted to chapbook of poems which come from a larger manuscript of the same name, Michael Broek’s “The Logic of Yoo.” The poem “probes the moral logic of George W. Bush’s legal counsel John C. Yoo from the perspective of a graduate student who supplements his income by writing academic papers for hire. Ten years into the ‘war on terror,’ the issues the poem raises remain acutely relevant.” (BPJ) The BPJ website includes a PDF of the first dozen pages of the poem. The BPJ website will also feature Michael Brock moderating a discussion of The Logic of Yoo for the September Poet’s Forum. (Great opportunity for teachers and their students!)
