AgentX Milton


message 2: by Eve (new)

Eve Lyons 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 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
