During my adolescence i was really into keats but probably my favourite and most loved one us Giacomo Leopardi.

Hello, I'm sorry if something I write sounds strange but english is not my motherlanguage. Make me notice it if you can, I'll correct the mistake.

It'd be impossible to have me decide a favourite between Sylvia Plath, Philip Larkin, Ginsberg, Dylan Thomas, Rimbaud, Keats, or Blake.

Ooh and we can't forget Dante!!

I have Soft Sciences but I haven't read it yet! I can't wait! You know when you can TELL that you'll love a poet before you have even read them?

doesn't have to be English, doesn't have to be about ED. who do you guys like the most? :)

 

 

What is your sig gif from? Deeply interested. 

 

In answer, right now I have a thing for Rilke but I've been reading Kahlil Gibran, Maya Angelou, Poe and Sylvia Plath recently. I just bought some poetry books that haven't arrived yet. I'll update if they're good. 

 

I'll be going back to Byron, Emily Dickinson and G.K Cheterton quite soon as I've not read them in a while and I feel like now is a good time to gain more from them.

I thoroughly approve. I'm simply obliged to be cold and dark and inhuman, but then I came to MPA and found out about wintergirls so now I just look like a butterfly lol.

i'm surprised no one has said Sarah Kay. she's not one of the great historical poets, but her work is beautiful. i particularly like "If I Should Have a Daughter", she read it during a tedtalk and it was quite moving.

 

however i also love Poe, Dylan Thomas, and ofc Plath. I do also tend to read poems by anonymous writers so sadly i can't credit some of my favorites.
