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 ‘A Pasture Poem’ and ‘A Measuring Worm’ by Richard Wilbur and ‘Awaking’ and ‘An Elementary School Class Room in a Slum’ by Stephen Spender.

Dr. Gerald Weiss earned both a B.A and an M.A. in Classical Languages from St. Louis University.  He pursued graduate studies in Philosophy and Theology at Innsbruck University (Austria) and later at the Gregorian University (Rome, Italy) where he received his Ph.D. While writing his dissertation he taught for a year at the Rome Center of Loyola University of Chicago.
