Billy Collins

U.S. Poet Laureate 2001-2003

Considered “The Most Popular poet in America” by the New York Times, Collins sees his poetry as “a form of travel writing” and considers humor “a door into the serious.” It is a door that many thousands of readers have opened with amazement and delight. As poet Kevin Young notes, “Devotees may come for his jokes, but they stay for the asides.”
