Poetry in America: Findings of the Poetry Foundation’s study on American Attitudes toward Poetry

Check out the details of Poetry in America, the Poetry Foundation‘s study on American attitudes toward poetry.

“Findings from the Poetry Foundation’s seminal research study—Poetry in America—demonstrate that a lifelong love for poetry is most likely to result if cultivated early in childhood and reinforced thereafter.” (Foundation release) But this is not really surprising. What I found to be interesting is that many Americans see poetry as a valuable and rewarding thing, but often do not take the time to read it.

This study is really worth taking a look at.
