Those who have been reading this blog for awhile will remember Diane McCormick’s many contributions to this site. Though she has been taking time off to work on other writing, she has graciously consented to again contribute to this site.
She provides a much-needed second opinion on poets who deserve much more commentary and perspective than I can provide. As a former teacher, I, more than most, probably appreciate multiple perspectives on a work. Interpretating poetry is an art, not a science, and multiple perspectives, whether through multiple writers or reader commentary, offers the best way to look at any poem.
