I love poetry. I have a soft spot for classics. Frost and Emerson especially. I love Ada Lovelace’s “The Princess Saves Herself” and Robert M. Drake’s Beautiful Disaster
I have this at my bedside always, dip in and out often.
Pablo Neruda, any of his books and poems I utterly love.
Seth King has a book of poetry out.
Anything by Mary Oliver
Jennae Cecelia! She writes amazing poetry books!
I loved Keaton Henson’s Idiot Verse. If you have heard any of his songs, his poetry gives off that similar feeling of melancholy.
I used to be enthralled with Federico Garcia Lorca
Mary Lambert and Christopher Poindexter
Volgon poetry is plangently imageiful.
Iain Thomas. “I wrote this for you “
Dylan Thomas, Robert Frost, Anne Sexton…
Amanda Lovelace, “The Princess Saves Herself in This One”
Mary Oliver and Edna St. Vincent Milay
My great grandmother had a thing for poetry about flowers. She copied her favorites in a book and pasted in paper flowers to match the poem. It’s my favorite poetry book?
I read some
Read Annabelle Lee last night because I saw it on pintrest and just felt like reading it again
By Sylvia Plath and Maya Angelou
My absolute favorite poetry book is The Best Loved Poems of the American People. Read my first copy do much it fell apart, had to buy another copy
I’ve never liked poetry but I’d love to get into it. Any recommendations?
@Beth Go for an anthology, one that covers multiple poets, see if any types or periods suit then go for a more specialised collection.
‘Four Quartets’ and ‘Prufrock and Other Observations’ by TS Eliot
I do, I read Rupi Kaur, Pablo Neruda, R. H. Sin, Nikita Gill, Samantha King, Amanda Lovelace, Lang Leav, Michael Faudet and Robert M Drake
Rainer Maria Rilke. <3
“The Best of It” by Kay Ryan and pretty much anything by Lucille Clifton, Wislawa Szymborska, Rose Ausländer, Jiménez and Mary Oliver. Rilke, Hesse, Lorca, Poe, Wardsworth Longfellow and the English Romantics are also always appreciated. Tyler Gregson’s Typewriter series has a few gems in it as well. But considering the quantity of poems he produces, he can be a bit inconsistent at times.
