Join Matthew Zapruder as he discusses his new book, Why Poetry, with Natalie Baszile.
An impassioned call for a return to reading poetry and an incisive argument for poetry’s accessibility to all readers, by critically acclaimed poet Matthew Zapruder. In Why Poetry, award-winning poet Matthew Zapruder takes on what it is that poetry–and poetry alone–can do. Zapruder argues that the way we have been taught to read poetry is the very thing that prevents us from enjoying it. In lively, lilting prose, he shows us how that misunderstanding interferes with our direct experience of poetry and creates the sense of confusion or inadequacy that many of us feel when faced with it.
