Take a look at this fine website summarizing the work of a Latin poetry workshop I participated in last summer here in the U.S. (link). Our teacher for the workshop was a professor from Cambridge University. Why is this important? All good poetry communicates truths and realities, things we are hungry for as humans. The poetic medium gives us a means of grasping such verities that other forms of communication lack.
