|My sister took this picture in her yard!|
Here's the questions we'll be discussing:
1. Why is poetry important?
2. Where do poems come from? Do you have a plan or a theory abut what a poems should do; where it should go?
3. What are some of the developments in contemporary American poetry?
4. Should poetry respond to the political/environmental challenges of our time, and if so, how?
Anyone care to take a stab at any of these? :) I'll share my responses and perhaps some responses from the other panelists next week!
Meanwhile, the Progressive Poem continues to progress over at radiant Robyn's Deckled Edge... and lively Laura Purdie Salas has Roundup. Happy last Friday of April, y'all. xo
