The Drunken (a parody of The Raven) officially published

My parody of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" has been officially published by the Society of Classical Poets. You may remember that the parody, entitled "The Drunken", won first place in the long poem category of the Society's "Funny Food Poetry Contest" last year; but the poem itself only ever appeared in the comments section of the contest page (posting comments was how one entered the contest). Now, the Society of Classical Poets has seen fit to give the poem an official page of its own! Many thanks to the Society, to my readers, and to all fans of Edgar Allan Poe. It was a joy to write this parody of one of my favorite poems, and I'm thrilled that it has a proper page now.

The first 47 lines of my Iliad translation has been published by the Society of Classical Poets! It is an honor to be published, and I've gotten a lot of generous comments from readers already.
