Readers of Senft eager to find new information on wosi milamala will find that this new publication does not provide a significant addition to our previous knowledge of the world of Tuma. Given the richness of some Trobriand renditions of the underworld and the degree of divergence that exists between these renditions (for instance, some of Senft's collaborators state that the baloma sometimes turn into a seashell or a star, see 31), one wonders if these chapters on Trobriand eschatology could have benefitted more from an earlier introduction of the wosi milamala, or, at least, of some of the themes they deal with.

Keith Tuma's recent article "After the Bubble" covers much and various ground, but the recurring theme, as articulated in the closing paragraph, is the plight of "those obliged to defend the study of contemporary poetry or creative writing in the university," a cause he feels is impeded by "the sentimental courtesies and complacencies that prevent a conversation about what and where poetry might be soon." He earlier identifies those courtesies with "American Hybrid and lots of other publications" and in his opening paragraph states that most of the poets in American Hybrid teach in universities.
