Judson Scruton leads a discussion of a selection of poems from The Poets Laureate Anthology edited by Elizabeth Hun Schmidt. The Poets Laureate Anthology brings together a sampling of the works of the 43 ‘poets laureate’ of the United States from the inception of the position in 1937 until the book’s publication in 2010. Collected and edited by the former poetry editor of The New York Times Book Review, the volume includes brief introductions to each of the poets as well as an inviting foreword by poet Billy Collins who held the position from 2001 to 2003. In its review, Booklist said that “the nearly 500 poems map a great republic of the imagination.” For this year’s discussion, we will be reading ‘Meditation at Lagunitas’ and ‘Sonnet’ by Robert Haas as well as Louise Bogan's ‘Cartography,’ ‘Dragonfly,’ and ‘Night.’   This group meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month from September through May, excluding December.  Call the Senior Center for details and to register at 203-834-6240. Comstock Community Center, 180 School Road, Wilton.
