Happy World Poetry Day!!
I have never been one for reading much poetry but lately I have been wanting to explore it more. Here’s some poetry that I am hoping to read sooner rather then later:
Sonnets by William Shakespeare (late 1500s)
Psalms– King James Bible (1611)
Songs of Innocence and Experience by William Blake (late 1700′s and early 1800′s)
Final Harvest: Emily Dickinson’s Poems by Emily Dickinson (late 1800′s)
The Collected Poetry of Paul Laurence Dunabr by Paul Laurence Dunbar (late 1800′s)
Plath: Selected Poems by Silvia Plath (first half of 1900′s)
What would you recommend to a relative newbie to poetry? Whose your favorite poet?
