|The literary activists behind Poetry Is Not a Luxury believe that poetry best
inspires the public when it is woven into the fabric of everyday life - making
meaning and giving pleasure at both expected and unexpected moments. By choosing
poems we find exceptionally readable, wonderful, and/or suited to the local
context and placing them around campus, we seek to surprise, unsettle, and
delight those who otherwise might not have any poetic light in their lives.
Mainly, we operate during the month of April (National Poetry Month), but poems
we've chosen may be found at Dickinson year-round, particularly on this website.
We are Carol Ann Johnston (English Dept.), Adrienne Su (English Dept.), and Brooke
Wiley (Art & Art History Dept.), as well as student volunteers
