Poetry Meetup

Agenda: 1: Get coffee, and maybe a pastry or a sandwich. Soup is good, too. 2: Sit around and trade news and gossip. 3: Get more coffee. 4: Talk about poetry. 5: Get some more coffee. (No, really, we spend most of the time talking about our poetry; yours, too, if you come. Bring enough copies so we can read along with you and make notes -- which you will get back.)
WARNING! Our discussions are free-for-alls and, although we mean no disrespect, sensitive people can be bothered by them until they get used to us.

    Really good group of poets, and a fine selection of works. The discussion was lively, as always, and other than one person who will become geographically unavailable, we seem not to have run anyone off.

    can anyone recommend a good staple book of poetry? a must-have compilation?

      There are a lot of good basic books. Harold Bloom's The Best Poems of the English Language is good, especially for the introduction. If you want something more comprehensive, the Norton anthologies are very good.
