In honor of National Poetry Month, which begins today, McSweeney's gives us a look at the far too often overlooked (figuratively of course, not literally, because, you know they're giants so its hard to overlook them . . . . ) "Giants of Poetry."  I haven't read very much poetry in the last few years so perhaps I should make an effort to do so this month - a friend recently gave me a wonderful gift that included several volumes so perhaps I will look at them with more earnest in the next few weeks.  If we didn't have plans this evening I would try to make it over to hear Li-Young Lee read at the local university - I really enjoyed this NPR interview with him some months back.
