Poetry for Beginners
There are so many different styles of poetry and so many wonderful poets. But to get you started, I've noted two sites to listen/read through. I'm also suggesting 2 poets I adore.
- •New Yorker Poetry PodcastGreat way to listen to different styles of poetry and poets to hear what you like. I'm a firm believer that poetry should be read aloud.
- •PoetryFoundation.orgI could spend all day sifting through poems on here. Some poems have an audio button to listen to it being read.
- •Anne Sexton - For My Lover, Returning to his Wifeher poems are like secrets. She has a way of writing that exposes all her truths. This poem is my favorite. She was my first real introduction to poetry.
- •Lexi Rudnitsky - A Doorless Knocking into NightHer writing is contemporary, fun. Poems that leave you wanting to know more. This collection is a really good read.
