Analysis and comments on Marginalia by Billy Collins

Comment 1 of 1, added on October 24th, 2005 at 2:50 PM.

We read this poem in my Intro to Lit class in a packet of several others.
I really enjoyed it, having seen more than one example in some of the used
books from the bookstore (and even textbooks in high school). It always
kind of made me wonder sometimes what that other writer was like and
whatnot. Just an interesting thought.
