David Brooks on Engaged Writing

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/30/opinion/brooks-engaged-or-detached.html?_r=1&

While I was writing my short response questions for my exam, I wanted to make sure I could understand the essence of engaged poetry and its ins and outs crystal clearly. So, I came across this article written for the New York Times in April of last year and it gives clear cut examples and contradictions to what engaged poetry is. Not only does he give traits of engaged writing he also gives traits of what might a detached writer might write about. It ends up explaining both sides very well and is a good read if you want to sharpen up your understanding of these different aspects of poetry.

    This post helped me better understand engaged poetry. I obviously knew a little bit based off the class and my research for a few projects, including our presentation, but this post helped me delve into my research on the subject matter even more. I appreciate the post.
