Molly Peacock (au). Molly Peacock is perfectly poised to strip away poetry’s mystique to reveal how it works its alluring alchemy on us. Rather than coolly dissecting poems, she opens them the way through the blind delight of examining it with the senses & the intellect all at once. She shows us why poetry begs to be read aloud to another person, discussed, & enjoyed among friends. Through her discussion of 14 poems -- many by well-known poets, including Philip Larkin, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Michael Ondaatje, Margaret Atwood, & Lorna Crozier -- Peacock leads us on an intuitive journey into the mysterious world of verse. She also shows us how to form poetry circles of our own, to share our private pleasures within a communal reading group.
