Poetry Pairing: Maps


Last week’s This American Life podcast was about mapping. My favorite story was about Denis Wood who sees his making of maps of his neighborhood in North Carolina as art, even a form of poetry. To pair with this story is Lucia Perillo’s poem The Oldest Map with the Name America in Beloit Poetry JournalAn added bonus: some notes on The Birth of Our Modern Obsession with Maps from Maria Popova at Brain Pickings.
