Posted on November 1, 2012 |
By Li Shen

By Jan Demers



Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn said, “How can you expect a man who’s warm to understand one who’s cold?” We don’t have that problem in Vermont. There is not one of us who doesn’t understand the cold and the wonderful feeling of entering a warm space after being chilled.

VERMONT POET LAUREATE SYDNEY LEA.jpg

Sydney Lea, Vermont’s current poet laureate, wants to use that honorary position to clear away some of the fog that he believes surrounds poetry these days.

“I would like to de-mystify poetry,” he says. “Poetry is really just another way of looking at the world.”
