Who reads poetry?

Jackie Kay of the Guardian argues the case of poetry in a lovely (if old) article. Perhaps she is right (even though I instinctively shudder at the sheer glance of something proudly entitled `Costa book awards’. It must be the snob in me, and not the poetry-reader or the sociologist. The poetry-reader rejoices: surely, it must be good that anyone sponsors poetry. The sociologist muses on the shifting place of reading in contemporary life).
