Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month. Check out our poetry month displays on the Music Collection Counter.

Why would the Music Collection celebrate poetry month?  Songs are poems set to music, and in some cultures poetry and music are inseparable.  This was true in Ancient Greece, for example.

To see whether the Music Collection has songs set to your favorite poet's works, go to CardCat, and do a subject keyword search on the poet's name AND musical settings.  For example, Goethe and Musical Settings.
