Poetry and Sept. 11: A Guided Anthology

“The interest in poetry in the wake of the calamitous attacks of last fall surprised some observers. But the art of poetry makes the breath of any one reader its medium: a commanding appeal, heightened at a time when many of us felt overdosed or overwhelmed by mass media.” Robert PinskyPoetry and Sept. 11: A Guided Anthology(Slate))

Pinsky is the former U.S. Poet Laureate. He also wrote an interactive fiction work called Mindwheel. See also a website created by a former student last fall, Poetry after September 11.
