I know Ms. Dickenson already had a stamp released (I have one that I cherish.) And I studied with Brodsky, so this makes him the first person I've known who got his own stamp. Agree re: Teasdale and St. Vincent Millay -- they should be on this set. Maybe there will be subsequent releases of poet stamps? Let's hope.

Just a critical comment on the choice of the 10 American poets honored on the new forever stamp. I know the stamp sought not to repeat the appearance of poets previously honored such as Robinson Jeffers or Robert Frost. However, the fact one of American's greatest poets, Hart Crane was not included is a travesty of justice. I assume Carl Sandburg as already appeared, and what of Sara Teasdale or Edna St. Vincent Millay? and Vachel Lindsay.
But Crane's neglect is unforgivable here.
