Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Poetry Week on VL

Welcome to our 8th Annual Poetry Week! Along with warming temperatures, blossoming trees and gardens filled with new plants and flowers, spring also brings our focus on verse. It seems appropriate for some reason. This year we have an assortment and we start off the week with a surprise.

Monday- Moira considers a little-known poem by a little known poet and remembers the first time she heard it.

Wednesday- Jackie looks at one of Maya Angelou’s most popular poems, Still I Rise.

Friday- A visit to Granada makes Hilary reach for the poems of Lorca again, after a gap of many decades.
