Essays on Reading

This is a collection of essays I’ve written on different types of reading; how to read poetry, reactions to things I’ve read, and thoughts about poets and writers. Sometimes I add a page with my favorite poems or poets, because I do like to share. New essays will be added as they are written. Check back for more!
