Hmm …

… Did Poetry Die 100 Years Ago This Month? —PoemShape. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

I think e. e. cummings was rather well known— at least in my day. And there was Dylan Thomas. And allen Ginsberg was practically a rock starnp.
But I wonder if you still are made to read poetry in school. That’s how my generation caught on to it. Ther is plenty of great poetry around today. Read Dana Gioia. He can help you appreciate life.
