As best I can tell, the entire discussion of Ted Kooser that has taken place in this Corner over the last couple of days is based on reading nothing more than a single, slight poem by Kooser that I posted on Sunday. Googling around, I see that Kooser is the author of at least half a dozen books of poetry. Anyone who would care to inform himself about the work of the new poet laureate might begin by clicking here.
P.S. Between me and anyone who fails to include Frost among the truly great American poets there exists a gulf that will persist until the crack of doom.
