the literary life 2/9/10
We've been reading a few Billy Collins poems in my English classes. Here's a link to Billy Collins reading his poem, "The Lanyard." It's always fun to watch him read. I saw him read once at UCSB, and the huge auditorium was packed; people were laughing all the way through. The teenagers I teach didn't seem to get the humor. Maybe it's an age generational thing...But I think he's kind of cool.
