National Poetry Month: Home

RTC Library is celebrating all things poetry during April, National Poetry Month.

"Rather than numbing or drowning out the difficult-to-describe but urgently sensed feelings that are part of being human, poetry invites us to tease them out, to draw them into language that is rooted in intricate thought and strange impulse. Rather than putting up a buffer between ourselves and those outside our immediate sphere, poems devise means to contemplate those others and to take in their perspectives." - from Tracy K. Smith's Staying Human:  Poetry in the Age of Technology.
