This month is National Poetry Month!
To celebrate, I’m posting one poem (or extract) a day on my quotes tumblr. I know a number of people don’t like or use tumblr, but I’m giving it a try. I’m enjoying the challenge to review my favorite poems and find ones that resonate with me.I’m focusing on classic poetry this year.
It’s also prompting me to read more poetry of all kinds. Poets to read more in depth this year:
- Anne Bradstreet
- Maybe: Tennyson, Wordsworth, and Blake
Any other public domain poets I should look at this year? I have a lot of anthologies (one for Victorian poetry, two for Romantic poetry, One for Imagist poetry, and a few with lots of all kinds), so I may just dabble here and there. I’ll try to have one poetry post a month.
Poets.org also provides a poem a day.
My inaugural issue of the Rebecca Reads Newsletter is all about poetry. It will go out on Wednesday, so sign up before then if you want to receive it. (I apologize for the bit of confusion that first day when I had to close sign up temporarily. I changed email list providers and I’m much happier now. I still have your emails if you signed up before Saturday, though, so no worries! You’ll still receive the first newsletter.)
Finally, just a reminder that Wednesday night I’ll chose the winner of my giveaway for Ghosts.
How are you celebrating poetry month?
