Along with the rest of these posts, epigraphs are an added layer of voice for my work. And I like them. I like being reminded poetry is an inheritance and epigraphs can be like using the silver on Thanksgiving or the turkey itself. I don’t know who y’all are reading right now but I’m not finding a epigraphs everywhere and under the mushrooms. I actually read some current poets and see how what could be an epigraph is interwoven into a poem only to show off an education.
