Thank you, John. I confess that I am on a bit of a crusade. When one looks back at the world poetry tradition, one sees so many possibilities. Contemporary English-language poets, focusing on lyric and not even all the possibilities of lyric, strike me as tapping into only maybe 10 percent of that potential. I want poetry to do for us all the things it did for the Ancient Greeks.
