A poem written by a teacher in Turkey spurs an investigation by authorities for criticizing a number of top Islamic scholars. W. B. Yeats poem, “Death,” a clue in a 13-year old murder of a French filmmaker. Rare interviews with Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath are released by the British Library, and the Godfather of rap Gil Scott –Heron releases new works, “I’m new here.

Plus, Natalie Merchant’s sets 26 poems from various poets to music in, “Leave Your Sleep.” It comes out today. Listen to Merchant talk about the five-year old project, and check out some of the poets from times long gone. The project looks very cool.
