    Billy Collins was born the only child of William S. and Katherine M. Collins. Collins’s father was an electrician, and his mother was a nurse. Billy Collins is an American phenomenon. No poet since Robert Frost has managed to combine high critical acclaim with such broad popular appeal. His work has appeared in a variety of periodicals including The New Yorker, The Paris Review, and The American Scholar, he is a Guggenheim fellow and a New York Public Library “Literary Lion.”.

    Billy Collins’ use of humor is one of the most distinguishing characteristics of his poetry. In this benefit performance for WNYC, comedian Bill Murray begins the evening with a delightfully witty introduction and an homage to the former Poet Laureate.   Billy Collins is the author of several books of poetry and two anthologies of contemporary poetry, including The Trouble with Poetry: And Other Poems; The Arts of Drowning, which was a finalist.

May 7, reading at the Library of Congress () Recap from the Library of Congress Information Bulletin. I own this book in hard cover, but a visual reading cannot compare with hearing it read by Billy Collins himself. Beginning with the first poem, "The Country" (my favorite humorous poem in the book) and ending with "The Names" written (for the victims of September 11th and their survivors) this book of poetry illustrates the wide scope of Billy.
