Hi everyone! Welcome to the second month of the Read More/Blog More Poetry Event. I am sorry I am a bit late. I had planned to have this post up hours ago.
This month sort of got away from me, so I am just going to answer the questions Lu posted on her blog last month. Then you will find Mr. Linky at the bottom.
- Your favorite poem
Probably 'Goblin Market' by Christina Rossetti. I read it for the first time back in university and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I also enjoyed the reread of it last year. I own a copy of a book with it in it. I held on to it after university.
- Your favorite poet
I really enjoy Emily Dickinson and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. I haven't read either of them in years, though. And Christina Rossetti, but other than 'Goblin Market' I haven't read her in years either.
- Do you read poetry often? Why or why not?
uh, nope. If I did I would probably have a better post for today! I have just never got into poetry. I have been lucky to find poets here and there that I enjoy, but I don't search them out as much as I should.
- Why did you start reading poetry?
Well, I started reading poetry this year because I want to expand my horizons a bit. I am not off to a good start as this is month two and I read nothing!
- Do you ever write poetry?
Nope! I had to back in like high school and that was traumatic enough, thanks.
- Is there a poet you’ve always wanted to read but never have?
um, probably, but nothing is jumping out to me at the moment.
- What do you hope to accomplish through a year of writing about poetry?
Well, I will hopefully figure out some sort of method to write about poetry. I had a hard time figuring out what to say last month. I also hope to pick-up more on imagery and things I wouldn't necessarily notice. Then, I would just like to be able to say I do like poetry by finding authors and poems that I enjoy.
- Do you think you’ll read more poetry this year?
Hopefully the rest of the year will go better than this month!
Sorry! I was even slower because I hadn't used Mr. Linky in ages. (I couldn't remember my log-in...)
