How did you hear about Living Poetry?

It's not a poem in the traditional sense, but it says everything about poetry: « Tout ce qui n'est pas prose est vers et tout ce qui n'est point vers est prose. » [Everything that is not prose is verse, and everything that is not verse is prose.] Molière, Le bourgeois gentilhomme, acte II, scène IV. ~ All in jest. ~

Which poet or poetry book are you currently reading?

Often, what I've most recently read. Some from the past include Louise Labé, Jean de Sponde, Jacques Prévert, Horace, Baudelaire, Victor Hugo, Agrippa d’Aubigné, Molière (many of his plays are in Alexandrine verse). In English: Dryden, Alexander Pope, Milton, Shakespeare. Just learning about living poets -- reading suggestions welcome!

Introduction

"The purpose of a writer," said Camus, "is to keep civilization from destroying itself." Perhaps the purpose of poetry to to keep us from destroying ourselves.
