Those of you who actually know me, you may notice that I have been posting assignments on my facebook. Yesterday, everyone was to read Adrienne Rich (her poem “White Night” is my favorite. Go on, look it up.)
What did you think of her work? I heard her read a few years ago. It was wonderous.
Today’s assignment was to go old school with William Blake (London is my favorite of his poems). While reading his poetry, also take time to look at some of his etchings.
OK Discuss. What did each of these people give to poetry? What did they do for you? Do you like them? How are they different or the same?
