How could Superman, the Edsel, Plastic Man, Eisenhower, cemeteries and the Fourth of July possibly make good poetry? Modern poetry draws from everyday imagery, real people and imaginary characters.
On April 7, George Longenecker will read poetry of superheroes and popular culture, including his own poems and those of others. Longenecker has made many presentations for the National Popular and American Culture Association. He taught writing and history for many years at Vermont Technical College. His poetry has been published in Vermont Literary Review, Isthmus, Poetry Quarterly, Whale Road Review, Atlanta Review and in the anthology Drawn to Marvel: Poems from the Comic Books.
