U.S. Poets to Be Honored on 2012 Postage Stamps

Ten 20th-Century American poets will appear on U.S.  postage stamps next year.

The poets selected are Elizabeth Bishop, Joseph Brodsky, Gwendolyn Brooks, E. E. Cummings, Robert Hayden, Denise Levertov, Sylvia Plath, Theodore Roethke, Wallace Stevens and William Carlos Williams.

These worthies will join a host of other authors previously featured on the postage stamps of the United States and other countries. In fact, there’s an entire website devoted to showcasing those stamps – as well as another website devoted to stamps featuring libraries.
