Suddenly the mass media believe poetry is for everyone: taxi-drivers in movies quote William Carlos Williams and a poem helps sell blue jeans. Poetry readings proliferate: poetry bars spring up, poetry slams draw crowds--are we seeing the beginning of a fuller integration of poetry into American life or is it a fad?

A Panel Discussion with Peter Davidson, Marilyn Hacker and Katha Pollitt, moderated by Cornelius Eady.
