We make clear in no uncertain terms that we are lovers of art and lovers of words. There is no greater form of art and words than poetry. But what makes poems great? What makes some more successful than others? What makes one poem stir the heartstrings of one man or woman and, in another, to resonate not at all? We brought in two of our favorite poets and scholars–Elise Paschen and Christina Pugh–to discuss all of these matters and inviting them to read some of their own poems and some of their favorites. As always, we took your calls and emails.
