Some poetry-related links I’ve recently run across–
- My friend Jennifer Tuttle posted this link on FB to an interview with Sean Haldane, a neuroscientist who was just nominated to be Professor of Poetry at Oxford University–you’ll want to be sure to read to the end, as the really good stuff comes at the finish. His thoughts on poetry and how it relates to brain function are fascinating.
- And this link is for my friends who are teachers, and those who are into pop music– or ideally, both: the Pop Sonnet tumblr, which rewrites popular song lyrics as Shakespearean sonnets. (Think anything ranging from “Livin’ on a Prayer” to “Stacy’s Mom.”) Thank Matt for this one.
