Welcome. Joshua Philipp August 20, 2012 From the Society Poetry is everywhere. It is the lyrics in the songs on the radio, in our national anthems, in the fight songs of our favorite sports teams; it is in our English classes, in Shakespeare, and behind the highest walls of academia.But, despite poetry’s abundance, poetry that is both new and good is hard to find today. Good, new poetry builds on the perennial forms, like meter and rhyme, left to us by millennia of good poets. It carries a message infused with the profound insights and lofty character of the poet. It touches on humanity’s quintessential quest for virtue over vice, epic over ephemeral, and hope over heartbreak. With this in mind, the Society of Classical Poets has been formed as a group of poets dedicated to the revival and proliferation of good, new poetry that follows classical forms. We invite you to join us!
