Poetry Is Dead

Or so says Newsweek, at least. To prove them wrong, read this. Or this. Or this.

(Grossman tipped me off to the article.)

UPDATE You know, when I googled for the above poem — using the terms “Robert Frost” and “New Hampshire” — one of the first links to appear was rfrost.com, which (get this) sells essays on Frost’s poems, ostensibly to students who couldn’t be bothered doing it themselves. I guess that really settles it, no?

Also, I tried to find online Frost’s longish poem, “New Hampshire,” with no luck. It’s the title poem from one of his books, yet I can’t find it anywhere. Anyone know where it might be hiding?
