national poetry month en "Venera" By Jay Rogoff <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>Jay Rogoff has taught at Skidmore College since 1995; first in the former Liberal Studies Program, and since 2001 in the English Department, where he teaches courses in poetry, poetry writing, nonfiction writing, arts reviewing and criticism, Shakespeare, and twentieth century poetry.</p><p>His new poetry collection is <em>Venera</em>. It is Rogoff’s fifth book. In it, a husband consoles his wife when she is wakened by an imaginary child; another man daydreams of his kindergarten crush. Mary at the Annunciation, stunned by Gabriel’s inhuman beauty, contemplates her decades of purity stretching ahead.</p><p>Drawing on the natural world, personal intimacy, and the imagination as evoked in visual art and biblical narrative, Rogoff’s poems detail our drive to both acts of veneration and submission to Venus’s sensuous power.</p><p> Mon, 21 Apr 2014 14:35:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 88639 at "Venera" By Jay Rogoff Vox Pop : Poetry Forum : 4/16/14 <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">April is National Poetry Month, and today we’ll celebrate the likes of Whitman, Frost, and Ginsberg by welcoming readings of your favorite poems and recollections of how you discovered and fell in love with those words.</span></p><p> Wed, 16 Apr 2014 16:30:00 +0000 88306 at Vox Pop : Poetry Forum : 4/16/14 A Bard's Eye View - Djelloul Marbrook <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>April is National Poetry Month.
