On our way to the sill of the world, we’ve been trolling. Here’s what we’re catching:
• KWLS 28 will feature six past U.S. Poets Laureate as well as the current Laureate, Kay Ryan. The Library of Congress Poetry Home page is a wonderful resource for learning about the office and the many projects past Laureates have undertaken.
• Their $100 million’s lost some value, no doubt, but The Poetry Foundation was wise to invest it in their website, which is far and away the most comprehensive resource to American poetry, poets, and poems in existence.
• And don’t forget the audio recordings in the poetry archives of our good friends at PennSound, including Yusef Komunyakaa and Harvey Shapiro, or these readings from our own archives: James Tate, Charles Simic, Richard Wilbur, and Billy Collins.
