April is National Poetry month. Take a break for poetry today. You deserve it.

April is National Poetry Month and, at the LA Books Examiner, this is a cause for celebration. What a great opportunity to share with you some of our favorite poets and, perhaps, to urge you to take some time throughout the month to discover some new poets on your own.

And what better way to kick things off than a reading of "O Captain, My Captain" by America’s premier poet, Walt Whitman. Best known for Leaves of Grass (1855), Whitman was a controversial figure and extremely influential artist who virtually unlocked standard poetic conventions and structure, opening the door for a more natural ‘speaking’ style of poetry writing known as free verse. 

With this in mind, let’s all hit the pause buttons on our lives for a few minutes and enjoy this reading of Walt Whitman’s “O Captain, My Captain”…which many of you might remember from the memorable climactic scene in the popular film Dead Poets Society with Robin Williams.
