Is there any good William Blake tourism to be had in London?

I'm headed to the UK for the first time, and would like to do some sightseeing related to William Blake. Is there anything worth seeing? I've haven't found anything apart from Poet's Corner and this very dodgy seeming walking tour. Alternatively, can anybody advise me as to which museums in the UK are best for viewing Blake's original prints?

Adrienne Rich poem

Poetry question: Do you think Adrienne Rich's "November 1968" is literally about burning leaves? Does she intend that month and year to mean something to the reader? Any other thoughts? [more inside]

Young writer connected with HTMLGiant and made funny xtranormal videos?

I forgot the name of this young author I like. He writes weird, short fiction and had a crazy LiveJournal page (or something outdated like that). I think he's connected with HTMLGiant or some similar hip online literary site. [more inside]

What poetry should I read?

Can you suggest a poet or two to me? I'd like to have some poems to read at night before I go to sleep. I don't know anything about poetry and I'm afraid that buying something at random or because it has won a prize will leave me with poetry that is too dense and unapproachable. [more inside]

Emily Dickinson's Weirdest Poems (or Portions Thereof)?

For a project I'm working on, I need to find some of Emily Dickinson's most bizarre, inscrutable, puzzling, borderline-disturbing poems (or just single lines/couplets/stanzas etc.). Rather than go through all her poems trying to find them, I thought I'd ask her to see if anyone knew of any. I'll also accept poems where she talks about writing or language--I have some quotes but not anything full. [more inside]

Do you this Poem?

I am looking for a poem that I read in Time or Newsweek or some such magazine about ten years ago (probably longer). I am almost sure that the poet was Scandinavian and the poem was about the co-existence of good and bad things in the world. The poem illustrated this concept by talking about the existence of a tongue amongst sharp teeth and how a gentle heart is held by the rib cage. Any ideas? Thanks.

Where do the internet-savvy poets hang out?

What are the best online communities for poets? This previous thread says that poetryslamming was pretty good, but it looks dead now. Are there any others?

The Danish Poet: Getting US access to streaming video

The Danish Poet is the short film that won the Oscar for short film this year. Here's a website with the film in streaming video that i want to share with my friends. The problem is that people in the US can't seem to play the video. They're blocking the content to US users somehow. Is there any way my friends can use to get around it?

Langston Hughes query...

Does anyone have some good info on writer Langston Hughes, aside from obvious Google sources? Any information gotten off the beaten path? I'd love to get some relatively unknown info on him, if anyone has it, or some particulary good access sites/books. Writing a paper and am tired of following everyone elses footsteps with information access.
