In August of 2011, Bill Keller wrote an essay for the New York Times Magazine in which he argued that American political rhetoric could well borrow a page from the language of poetry. Along the way he recalled that I had taught him modern poetry back in 2000 at the Wharton School's Advanced Management Program. Keller had been sent by the Times management to learn a few things about finance and "strategic planning" and whatnot and what he liked most - I'm proud of to say - was the long session on Williams, Dickinson, and Countee Cullen.
