This is a big part of the enjoyment of our events.
It applies equally to the featured poets. So far I`ve read a book of poems by each of the four we`ve featured, as well as one by the next. And I've interviewed them and gotten to know them to some extent. And I`m amazed at how different they are from each other, in both their person and their poetry. I keep thinking the next one will compare to one of the others. Be similar. But no. How many wildly different kinds of poets can we possibly have? There are only so many directions on the compass.
I'm really getting into this. Each book I read is a whole new world.
