Well, I attended the poetry reading by Billy Collins at TU. It was great! He read from both current and past books, so I heard poems to which I had not been previously exposed. Now, I have to go looking for some of his earlier works so that I will be able to reread them.
I even had him sign one of his books - something I don't do very often.
It surprised me somewhat to find that it was better read by the poet himself. When I read, I bring my own experiences to the poem. When Billy Collins read, I felt that I gained insight into him that I had missed during my own readings. I guess because I heard and felt more clearly his own experience during his reading.
If you have a chance to hear him, I highly recommend it!
