Poems of Protest, Resistance, and Empowerment


Poems of Protest, Resistance, and Empowerment

Check out this poem sampler the editors of the Poetry Foundation have provided. Some of the usual suspects are there, of course, but look further to find Danez Smith’s “Tonight in Oakland,” Ilya Kaminsky’s “We Lived Happily During the War,” Heather McHugh’s “What He Thought,” and much more.

More poetry! More resistance!

  1. Thanks for sharing this Bob. I chose one simply cause I know a guy called Zbignew and this other Zbignew didn’t disappoint. I will bookmark and read the others as time permits (though maybe there should be a little more urgency in reading on this subject matter!).
