Lundberg suggests Phillip Levine, a poet who often writes about the working people, might be an appropriate choice. Lundberg writes:
Levine might be the most poignant choice, given the country's current economic
struggles. Raised in a blue collar family in Detroit, Levine writes poetry that
champions the working man.
Do you have a favorite poet who writes about work and workers? Who would you like to see Obama choose to read a poem at his inauguration?
