In this episode we talk about a recent article by Matthew Zapruder from the New York Times, "Understanding Poetry Is More Straightforward Than You Think," which gets us thinking about how schools teach poetry, what it means for poetry to be "obscure," poetic tradition, and whether there is value in making poetry straightforward. We do get kind of critical of the article, but hopefully we add to the discussion more than just bitch about the article.
