Billy Collins was the Poet Laureate of the United States at the time of 9-11. His poem "The Names" commemorates that event. In a powerful display of national grief Collins uses a simple structure of the litany to build a powerful and unifying sense of the grief shared by an entire nation. You can find a copy of the poem as well as additional materials for helping you with literary study and composition at our web site https://www.eliteliterarybookgroup.com/ .
