What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “Bishop is now regarded as one of America’s greatest poets.  While her technique is flawless and worthy of study from anyone who wishes to write verse, some of her poems lack emotional depth.”

Ethan: “It took me far too long to start reading Elizabeth Bishop. While she only published about a hundred poems in her lifetime, it was not hard for me to see that she intended each of them to be a masterpiece.”
