Tribrach: for those who love (or would like to love) poetry


Still, Poetry Will Rise – Megan Garber – Atlantic – November 1o, 2016 (an interview with Don Share, the current editor of Poetry.)

People who are poets are often very political; they’re often activists. We talk about political poetry as if it’s a kind of effusion about something going on, but the truth is, the heritage of poetry includes politicians. I mean, Yeats was a politician. Our greatest poets, really, have been active in what goes on in the world. And great or unknown, poets are participating in what makes a difference in the world. If you perceive that politics is a way of making a difference, and you engage in it, then you can get something done. And the same can be said of poetry. –Don Share
