I like this for a few reasons:

  • It’s relatable. Kate’s poetry captures a *moment* and though it may not last long (who knows?) most writing doesn’t. There are lots of writers who sold a lot at the time, but we don’t continue to study for whatever reason.
  • I’m glad she made money
  • People are interested in poetry again
  • This woman worked hard at her writing. Lots of writers are doing this, few feel the breakthrough.
