Read More Poetry

Did you make a New Year’s resolution to read more poetry?

If not, it’s not too late to do so. 

“For me, poetry is a practice that is helping me begin to slow down and become more attentive. Learning to read a poem carefully trains us to pay extraordinary attention to the sounds and images of language that we might easily overlook in our haste. … Poems offer us an invitation to abide with their words.”

– ERB Editor, Chris Smith, In Defense of Poetry

To help you read more poetry, we will be publishing two lists of recommended poets.

This first list will feature classic poets, whose work is freely available in the public domain.  These poems are good because they have withstood the test of time, and because they are easily and freely accessible. Their drawbacks are that they are dated (Many of them, for instance, write in verse, a form that is widely rejected among poets today), and that although we have tried to make our list as diverse as possible, there tends to be less diversity (A hundred years ago or more, the vast majority of poets being published were white males).

Our second list, which will be posted next week, will feature the work of contemporary poets.

It will be beneficial to develop habits of reading poems from both of these lists. The classics help us understand the tradition of poetry, and contemporary poets wrestle with contemporary concerns in the forms of today.

Classic Poets:

All the poems in these books are in the public domain. Read them on your device, print them out, post them on your blog, slice them, dice them and remix them into your own poems. Most of all, have fun!

Fox-George-LOC

Yesterday marked the anniversary of the death of George Fox, the founder of the Quakers.

George Fox (September 1624 – 13 January 1691) was an English Dissenter and a founder of the Religious Society of Friends, commonly known as the Quakers or Friends.

The son of a Leicestershire weaver, Fox lived in a time of great social upheaval and war. He rebelled against the religious and political authorities by proposing an unusual and uncompromising approach to the Christian faith. He travelled throughout Britain as a dissenting preacher, for which he was often persecuted by the authorities who disapproved of his beliefs.

Fox married Margaret Fell, the widow of one of his wealthier supporters; she was a leading Friend. His ministry expanded and he undertook tours of North America and the Low Countries. Between these tours, he was imprisoned for more than a year. He spent the final decade of his life working in London to organize the expanding Quaker movement.

In remembrance of Fox, we are delighted to share three ebook editions of his work that is available for FREE download!
