I Don’t Get it: Reading “Best American Poetry 2022” Together
Strangers to poetry, welcome! Poets, too. Or anyone who wants to take a guided tour through this year’s edition of a renowned, sometimes controversial, anthology. We’ll talk about poetry, how it works, about "bests" and who says so, as we dig into this year's collection of seventy-five contemporary poems. Choose your own "bests," compare notes, and sometimes say, "I just don’t get it." You’ll find insight, inspiration, and a supportive place for inquiry. Optional writing prompts available. Text required: Best American Poetry 2022.
