AgentX Milton


message 2: by Real Supergirl (new)

Real Supergirl Sarah Patch, you can write Milton in and vote for him in the poll.

Sarah W, Wallace Stevens? Really?


message 3: by AgentX (new)

AgentX Wordsworth is a good poet too. Some of the older poets most people know little about. But they're suprisingly good.


message 4: by Bev (new)

Bev Hankins Picked Emily Dickinson...but also love Rilke. And Edna St. Vincent Millay should be on this list.


message 5: by Blaserk (new)

Blaserk Shakespeare and T.S. Elliot have to be really close seconds..


message 7: by Lutha (new)

Lutha Leahy-miller Gary Snyder


message 8: by Karen (new)

Karen I'd like to add writer/poet Mark Mason - and one of his books - Strange Lands of Poetry.


message 9: by Anarchic Rain (new)

Anarchic Rain Only one for Rimbaud and just 6 for the Bard?? :O unbelievable.


message 10: by Daniel (new)

Daniel Jaimes Bukowski rules


message 11: by Stephan (new)

Stephan Poe, no doubt.


message 12: by Oscar (new)

Oscar Hightower I didn't see Langston Hughes, was he on the list?
