Our Public Poetry Announcement for Valentine’s Day features Jack Gilbert’s “The Forgotten Dialect of the Heart.”  Current State producer Joe Linstroth and Stephanie Glazier, acting director of MSU’s Center for Poetry in the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities, discuss Gilbert’s richly detailed poem and the limits of language when it approaches such broad, ineffable emotions like love.

Current State’s Public Poetry Announcements are brought to you by the Center for Poetry at Michigan State University’s Residential College in the Arts and Humanities.

Today we’re starting a new recurring segment on Current State. It’s called Public Poetry Announcement.
