“Time’s a goon, right?” Jennifer Egan,
Recently, I stumbled upon a blog called “The Days of Yore,” which showcases interviews from people before they became famous. Most of these interviews turn out to be prophetic. Since I was itching to read I decided to buy it rather than wait for the 20 people ahead of me on the library request list. The blog had an article from the author, Jennifer Egan, and after reading such an amazing book, I was really interested in what she had to say.

Celebrating End of National Poetry Month

Friday, 29 April 2011 14:36 Roseann Fino
Although poetry month may be ending, that doesn't mean the celebration has to end. As the month winded down I wanted to compile a poetry bestsellers' list. But that idea turned out to be easier said than done. Due to the small number of poetry sales, it turns out it’s actually harder to keep track of which poet had a bestseller.


In fact, according to Time Magazine the best selling poet in the United States is the Muslim mystic, Jalaluddin Rumi.  Another list told me that the best selling poets of all time were Shakespeare (how could it not be?), Lao-Tzu, and Khalil Gibran.  I decided to change things up. So this month instead of bestsellers, I'll give you the top ten most popular historical poets according to the insightful website  Perhaps Shakespeare is the best selling poet of all time, but he didn’t make this list.  Check it out!
