Spring | Summer 2017 POETRY
Calling all close-minded cynics! In this issue, we search for something to love about that most dreaded of literary genres—poetry. With essays on “Poets Hating Poetry,” cowboy poets in the American West, N. Scott Momaday on the mystery of language, Naomi Shihab Nye on the simple joy of listening—and, yes, a few poems too—we’ll suspend doubt and give poetry a chance. Come on. What do you have to lose? By the end of this issue, you just might like it—or love it—or at least not hate it so much.
