Poets Memorial Site: Notable Deaths & Obituaries

"Poets," wrote Percy Bysshe Shelley, "are the unacknowledged legislators of the world." We turn to them to express what is best in us, to give us words during weddings, funerals, and all the important occasions that shape our lives. This memorial site was created to honor and remember poets whose words continue to inspire, and whose legacies live on in their poetry.
