This week, the Curious ‘Cat asks Villanova students, “April is national poetry month. Do you have a favorite poem? Could you recite a poem?

Matthew Gregory—“If you asked me when I was in middle school I could, but not off the top of my head. I did like Robert Frost when I read him back in sixth grade.”

Kristen Wells—“I just finished writing a paper on the poet John Donne. He does a lot of English literature and English poetry. The poem is called ‘Confined Love.’ I thought it was really interesting. It’s not necessarily my favorite, but I really like anything he writes.”
