National Poetry Month 2015
Okay, maybe April is our favorite month. We are always excited to celebrate National Poetry Month, though we celebrate poetry every day at DIESEL. This month we have an all-audio newsletter with poetry read by DIESEL booksellers. If you've been following us throughout the years, you'll know we've been doing poetry videos, one a day, for the month of April. This year, we've added a new twist: testimonials of our memorable encounters with poetry, along with readings of the poems that inspired them.
We hope you enjoy the recordings in this newsletter and link through to the daily videos the whole month. Poetry can be a strange, musical, brilliant addition to our lives, tilting us toward greater appreciation, empathy, insight and pleasure. Hearing it is a great way to be introduced to a poem. As the British poet Basil Bunting said of how to read poetry: "first time sound, second time sense."
Happy Listening & Reading!
John & all DIESELfolk
