Publisher’s description: English poetry has been in existence for at least 1,400 years. This tradition continues alive and well at The Society of Classical Poets like nowhere else...
Today, poetry is everywhere. It is in the songs on the radio, in our national anthems, and in the fight songs of our favorite sports teams; it pervades our literature, our history, and our culture. But, despite poetry’s abundance, poetry that is both new and good is hard to find now, more than ever. At the SCP, we hold that good, new poetry cherishes and builds on the perennial techniques, like meter and rhyme, left to us by 1,400 years of English poets, who have also built on the traditions found in thousands of years of Greek poetry, Latin poetry, Chinese poetry, Japanese poetry, Indian poetry, and poetry of other cultures. Such good, new poetry carries a message infused with the profound insights and lofty character of the poet. It touches on humanity’s quintessential quest for virtue over vice, epic over ephemeral, and beauty over baseness.
With this in mind, the Society of Classical Poets is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 2012 as a group of poets dedicated to the revival and proliferation of good, new poetry.
