Last week, something possessed me and I wrote a piece I've contemplated for a couple years now: a look at how Harry Stephen Keeler's The Riddle of the Traveling Skull (1934) intersects with poetry, particularly the magazine Poetry...and the uncanny way the character of John Barr anticipates (ha!) the current president of the Poetry Foundation, John Barr.
Here—is the piece!
(Many thanks to the Keeler Society's Richard Polt and Skull refurbisher extraordinaire Paul Collins.)
