Poetry for the People: U.S. Poet Laureates
Wednesday, February 14, 2024
Poetry for the People returns this year with a focus on works by U.S. poet laureates.
U.S. poet laureates serve as our nation’s official poets. They seek “to raise the national consciousness to a greater appreciation of the reading of poetry.” We’ll discuss their poems and learn about their life highlights, while considering the techniques and use of language that distinguish these poets. Most importantly, Poetry for the People offers its members encouragement to offer their views, opinions, and reactions to the poems, which, in turn, enriches the class for everyone present.
