@lassarina possibly it's because the poetry community was dealing with a highly prolific plaigarist???? but like

omg just tell me if i'm good or not :'''')

@carly I SAW THAT OMG

Did you see the astonishing book title dust up

@lassarina ...i am not sure if i heard about the book title thing, go on

@carly so a debut author well received this year threw a public fit and sent their social media followers after another author, with 200+ NYT best sellers to their name, on the grounds of the latter author having plagiarized a book title from the debut author

@lassarina oh YIKES, what were the titles in question?

the poetry thing is so wild, apparently this has been going on for ages vulture.com/2018/12/poetry-twi

@carly I’ll DM since the accused author is being v publicly gracious and I respect that

@lassarina with a whole lot more arrogance and self-assuredness than I have, in any case

@isa for sure. Especially a major household name

@lassarina @isa at first glance, the title thing is dumb. There are so many identical and similar-sounding titles out there. I’m constantly asking people “do you mean by X author, or Y?”
