AS I AM NOW CO-HOSTING EXPLORING MY BOOKS WITH ADDLEPATES AND BOOK NERDS, OUR TOPIC THIS WEEK IS
A Book of Poetry.
It would have been an avalanche if I had tried to pull out a book of poetry from my book tower, so here’s a photo of the spine. If you can’t tell which one it is, it is the one above the Aeneid by Virgil. My book of poetry is Poems by Whittier. I vaguely remember reading something by Whittier back I my American Lit class my junior year of high school, but that was 7 years ago. In case you didn’t know, John Greenleaf Whittier is an American poet from 1800s who has a cool name and wrote anti-slavery poetry and prose. As stated before, I don’t remember much of what I’ve read by him, and as the books is buried in my stacks, it may be a while before I get to him again.
What poetry do you own?
To participate in the Exploring Your Bookshelf meme hosted by Addlepates and Bookworms and myself, here’s what you do:
- Post a picture of your bookshelf (preferably literal, but e-shelves work too).
- We’ll give you something about your shelf to write about. It might be your favourite cover, your favourite author, your book you most recently bought etc.
- Then give us the blurb and the cover of the book (and what you thought of it if you’ve read it)
- And finally, come back to one of our posts and send us a link! We promise to check out all of your posts!
