Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Grolier Poetry Bookshop ("Grolier's") is an independent bookstore on Plympton Street near Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States. Although founded as a "fine-arts" bookstore, its focus today is solely poetry. A small (404 sq ft.), one-room store with towering bookcases, it lays claim to being the "oldest continuous bookshop" devoted solely to the sale of poetry and poetry criticism.Over the years, Grolier's became a focus of poetic activity in the Cambridge area, which itself had, because of the influence of Harvard University, become a magnet for American poets. Grolier's became a point of call for visiting poets as well as a nexus of gossip, rumor and networking in the poetry community.show more
