This year, a special celebration for our our 20th Anniversary Fund Drive: every day in April we present a Poets’ Picks feature from years gone by, delivered to you by e-mail (and available in our archive). Newcomers to PD: have a taste of past treats! Long-timers: revisit past joys along with us! Enjoy favorite poems selected from among The Greats by 30 past PD poets (including Kwame Dawes, Jessica Greenbaum, David Hernandez, and Honorée Fanonne Jeffers, pictured here), along with their comments on the poems.
Sign up now (and tell your friends-in-poetry)! (Note: if you already receive our weekly e-newsletter, you need not sign up again).
And in the meantime, if you missed last year's feature, have a look at last year's picks...
A Poetry Daily Prose Feature:
"The title of this collection of essays, Post-Ireland?, acknowledges the question of the disappearance of a certain version of Ireland, that the old definitions may no longer apply, and implies with the question mark that perhaps Ireland can never be left behind because, as a colonial entity, the formulation of its identity has always been linked to its possible dissolution or absorption. Once, the larger threat was England, the United Kingdom, then America, now it is the European Union or globalization."
—Jefferson Holdridge and Brian Ó Conchubhair, Introduction to Post-Ireland? Essays on Contemporary Irish Poetry
