Celebrate National Poetry Month

April is for spring, marathons...and poetry!

quill penApril is National Poetry Month, the most widely celebrated literary event in the world! Celebrate with the MIT Libraries by checking out some poems, literary magazines, books about poetry, translations, and more — personally selected by staff across the Libraries:

Most poetry is housed in Hayden Library, but you may request books for pick-up at any library through Your Account. Is there a poet or anthology the Libraries do not currently own? Add it to our collection using the Suggest a Purchase form. Happy reading!
