Why Does Oprah Read Poetry Every Day?

In celebration of World Poetry Day, we look to Oprah and her personal affinity with the form of literature.

Why Does Oprah Read Poetry Every Day?

Oprah Winfrey has a range of hobbies, from hiking and gardening to photography and reading – including poetry. “You know what I’ve been doing lately that brings me such exquisite joy? Reading poetry”, Oprah told Harper’s Bazaar. “I recently saw Bruce Springsteen on Broadway, and it touched my life in a profound way… It is so deeply moving – it makes you see the poetry in your own life”.

Oprah added that she now puts aside time to read poetry each evening. “The show inspired me to start reading poetry again, and so now that’s how I like to end my day.” So what does the star read? “I’m currently working my way through The Way Under The Way by my friend Mark Nepo. I find it very calming”, she reveals.

Mark Nepo is a poet and philosopher whose book The Book of Awakening is a New York Times #1 bestseller.
