Occupy Wall Street Poetry Anthology Published Online

The Occupy Wall Street Library has just created a massive 400-page PDF version of their Occupy Wall Street Poetry Anthology. Until today, the anthology had lived in binders floating around the Occupy Wall Street camp.

Here’s more about the book: “For the past 6 weeks poets from around the world have been sending poems to the People’s Library in an effort to create a living/breathing poetry anthology in solidarity with the Occupy Wall St. movement. All poems are accepted into the anthology. The anthology is updated on a weekly basis. If you’d like a poem added to the anthology email stephenjboyer[at]gmail[dot]com and please include ‘occupy poetry’ in the subject.”

Author and rock star Patti Smith sent the Occupy Wall Street librarians a note after reading about the eviction: “what you are doing is only a beginning. / if it gets too tough in the winter / get healthy regroup and come back. / don’t be sorry about anything.
