NPR has a nice feature and interview
with poet and critic Edward Hirsch whose Poet's Choice
collection was released on April 3. Hirsch talks about making poetry accessible, relevant and interesting -- as well as challenging readers to find a truth they can identify with. He also references "the four subjects of poetry", which divides all poems into four types. I personally think there has to be at least half a dozen, but in any case I look forward to diving into this collection of Hirsch's columns and insight.
