I remember in Sixth Grade a substitute teacher asked the class if we knew any poems by heart. Did I! I favored the assembled company with a little Wordsworth, some Blake and, because I was cool like that, a soupçon of Ogden Nash. Needless to say, everyone was really impressed and I was incredibly popular for the rest of the school year. My penchant for oversized flannel jumpers only helped!
As usual, I was ahead of my time: Penguin Classics has released an amazing app called Poems by Heart, a memorization game that helps users learn poetry. Needless to say, for me the virtues of rote learning were their own reward. But for those who require slightly more incentive, the app provides a scoring program, a recording mechanism, and original art. Flannel jumper optional. —Sadie Stein, “Let the Memory Live Again”
