A Sideways View of Life: The Transformative Power of Poetry

21 minutes

Pulitzer Prize winner, Bob Dylan once said, "The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it." The same can apply to people after reading a good poem; they are forever changed. In this unique episode, Robin and Ben read and discuss two of their favorite poems.  They also discuss what poetry means to them. Robin is moved by the radical poems of Paul Laurence Dunbar, Audre Lorde, and Amiri Baraka. Ben focuses on transformative imagery in classical poems by John Keats, T.S. Eliot, and modern Swedish poets.  Join them to experience poetry that will also challenge your world vision and uplift your spirit.  You might never be the same!
