I see a lot of comments implying that disagreeing with McCrory's selection means that the poetry community wants to keep poetry for the elite. That's outrageous! Poetry is not locked on a shelf in an ivory tower-- just go to the library and pick up a volume. Hell- get off facebook and google some up! Poets want nothing more than to get their work out to the people. Its actually anti intellectuals like McCrory who devalue liberal arts education who are essentially denying the average person access to poetry and literature. He feels these subjects are a waste of time and money. If he and his ilk have their way the only people who will be able to experience the beauty and meaning of poetry will be those who can afford to pay for private education. So go find a book anti-elite trolls.
