The Death of Poetry greatly exaggerated

DarioCordoba

In theory, “Poetry has always been words on a page, open to anyone”, yet most people feel like it is not. Their experience of poetry came mainly from school and they are led to believe – we all know this is true! – that it is difficult and obscure. There is little public forum or discussion for poetry in mainstream discourse. This is not the case for novels or musicals. This is not the case in other countries.

(…by the way,  the poet looking at you from the 500 Córdoba note is Rubén Darío )
