with Robert Pinsky
In conjunction with Boston University and edX, Robert Pinsky is teaching a free, eight-week online poetry course which launches on September 30th. "The Art of Poetry" is based on the conviction that the more you know about an art, the more pleasure you will find in it. Sign up here!

"Singing School is nothing like the usual anthology of safe and sane selections. Instead, it is a gathering of poetry designed to stimulate the young and startle the old practitioner, with a surprise around every corner. Where else might you find Sterling Brown's 'Harlem Happiness' next to Queen Elizabeth I's 'When I Was Fair and Young,' and two poems away from Plath's 'Nick and the Candlestick'? . . . A book that will instruct and charm every reader."
