POET LAUREATE

ABOUT POET LAUREATE


A poet laureate is a poet officially appointed by a government or conferring institution, typically expected to compose poems for special events and occasions. The ancient mill of warehouse wreaths deserved to be revived under Italian humanism. Petrarca received the garland ring 1341 at the Capitol by a Roman senator. German emperors awarded the title to prominent poets such as Konrad Celtis (poeta ceasareus) and Martin Opitz, among Swedes eg. to Sylvester Phrygius.


Over a dozen national governments continue the poet laureate tradition. In England, where Ben Jonson was the first to be awarded the title of poet laureate (1616), the institution has lived on as a royal office. The owner since 2009 is Carol Ann Duffy (born 1955).


In the US, since 1985, the Library of Congress has appointed a Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry, usually for a two-year period. Several US states also have their own poet laureate with local connection.
