Today I had the pleasure of talking poetry shop with PhD student and upcoming scholar at the University of Notre Dame, Yugon Kim (김유곤), interested in Spirituality in Postmodern Poetry (among other things). Here are [some of] the texts he turned me on to dealing with Radical Poetics & Secular Judaism, in one way or another:
