In 1818, the English Romantic poet John Keats wrote that “poetry should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance.” Perhaps this is why our storytellers reference poetry so often. Both mediums tell more than just events and feelings. They tell, teach, and sing something universal. Something so core to humanity that the listener thinks it came right out of their own mind. Today we’ll be bringing you a collection of stories that revolve around poetry and its effects on our lives. Join us as we listen to Finn Bille, Mitchell G. Capel, and Lani Peterson as they tell tales and even perform a few pieces of poetry from the likes of Maya Angelou and Paul Laurence Dunbar.
