“It was the Age of Poetry precisely because it was still the age of form, when form, even when abandoned, was there to be abandoned.” Cynthia Ozick reflects on W. H. Auden’s readings at the 92nd Street Y Poetry Center.

James Dickey - How to enjoy poetry | Brain Pickings
How to enjoy poetry, why the adverb is not your friend, Tolstoy on knowledge and the meaning of life, and more
James Dickey, poet and novelist, offers some advice: "The first thing to understand about poetry is that it comes to you from outside you, in books or in words, but that for it to live, something from within you must come to it and meet it and complete it. Your response with your own mind and body and memory and emotions gives a poem its ability to work its magic; if you give to it, it will give to you, and give plenty."
How to enjoy poetry, by James Dickey: 1) [poetry]comes to you from outside you, in books or in words, but that for it to live, something from within you must come to it & meet it & complete it. Your response with your own mind & body & memory & emotions gives a poem its ability to work its magic; if you give to it, it will give to you, & give plenty 2. When you read, don’t let the poet write down to you; read up to him. Reach for him from your gut out & the heart & muscles will come into it, too

Mary Oliver, poet who has won the National Book Award (1992) and the Pulitzer Prize (1984). The New York Times described her as "far and away, [America's] best-selling poet".
"Let me keep my mind on what matters, which is my work, which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished." - poet Mary Oliver
I love Mary Oliver. "To live in this world you must be able to do three things - to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go” ―Mary Oliver, poet
Mary Oliver, Pulitzer prize-winning poet. Other commendations: Lannan Found. Literary Award, and the National Book Award. One of my favorite authors!
Mary Oliver, poet, September 10, 1935. “I tell you this to break your heart, by which I mean only that it break open and never close again to the rest of the world.”
“The woods that I loved as a child are entirely gone. The woods that I loved as a young adult are gone. The woods that most recently I walked in are not gone, but they’re full of bicycle trails. And this is happening to the world...I said once, and I think this is true, the world did not have to be beautiful to work. But it is. What does that mean?" ~Mary Oliver, poet
Mary Oliver, Poet: "Imagination is better than a sharp instrument. To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.

Extracting the Woodchuck - Harvard Magazine Robert Frost’s “doubleness,” revealed in his letters—and poems.
Robert Frost was a self-styled homespun sage, the poet as common man. He was also egomaniacal, lecherous, and loathsome. What, you’re surprised? | Harvard Magazine Jan-Feb 2014
Robert Frost revealed in his letters | Harvard Magazine Jan-Feb 2014. "After all, once the legend of the benevolent Frost melted away under the harsh light of biography, or 'pathography,' all that remained to keep the interest of posterity was Frost the artist."

Beautiful Painful, Carnival, Ceremony Reading, Education Reading, Vivid Scenes, 18Th Richard, Gay Poet, Grandmother
Miami-raised poet Richard Blanco has delivered an inaugural poem paying homage to the American experience. Blanco, at age 44 the youngest ever inaugural poet, recited a poem that painted vivid scenes about America and included reflections on his experience growing up as Cuban exile in New York City and Miami.
Richard Blanco boasts many "firsts" today, January 21, 2013. Not only is he the youngest, but also the first Latino AND the first openly-gay poet to read at a Presidential Inauguration.
Click for a beautiful, painful, tender, memory of daily trauma - Richard Blanco recalls the years of abuse by his grandmother, who desperately tried to "make a man out of me." [He was "made in Cuba, assembled in Spain, and imported to the United States—meaning his mother, seven months pregnant, and the rest of the family arrived as exiles from Cuba to Madrid where he was born. Only forty-five days later, the family emigrated once more and eventually settled in Miami."]
Richard Blanco- Beautiful reading of his poem today 1. 21.13 at inauguration.

from Sheltered Garden, by H. D., http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/177770# For this beauty, beauty without strength, chokes out life. I want wind to break, scatter these pink-stalks, snap off their spiced heads, fling them about with dead leaves— spread the paths with twigs, limbs broken off, trail great pine branches, hurled from some far wood right across the melon-patch, break pear and quince— leave half-trees, torn, twisted but showing the fight was valiant.
