It’s no small thing to be named poet laureate of the town where Robert Frost made his home, and where so many of the great master’s poems are situated. My good friend Bob Crawford is an excellent choice to receive the honor —and the responsibility— of the title. Kudos and cheers and congratulations—time to light the Guinness Candle!
Never miss a chance to listen to what Rhina has to say. Here she is in conversation with Meghan Chakrabarti of WBUR, talking about translating Robert Frost’s poems into Spanish. You can also listen to her read two of her poems, the wonderful villanelle, “Guidelines,” and perhaps her most anthologized poem, “Bilingual/Bilingue.” (You’ll see a lovely photograph of Rhina, too!)
