Chicken Soul Soup: Modern Poets

Me: Your homework was to find a poem you like–seeing as you’re being rather persnickety about poems.

Student: I found one. It’s Ben Jonson’s A Fit of Rhyme against Rhyme.

Me: Good choice. So, tell me about Ben Jonson.

Student: He’s a modern poet. I can tell ’cause he’s good. Not like that J. Alfred Prufrock guy.
