Here's a piece from NPR that reminisces about the way things used to be. I've heard plenty of protest poetry coming from our not-so-humble group of CUPpers, but the other point of the article is that poets no longer have much of a voice in the mainstream. Vidal asks if poets stopped talking or the public stopped listening? Clearly, I have to pin this one on the public. Cheers.
