For The Love Of Wisdom – Carolyn Forché – Poets

Carolyn Forché (April 28, 1950 – )

The poets are more expected to be intellectuals and to have an active interest in history and politics and everything going on. They’re not expected to be sequestered in a literary culture. They’re not expected to have no opinions about events in the world. They’re expected to have more seriously considered opinions because they’re poets — and not necessarily predictable opinions.
