    Just a thread to discuss poetry, favourite poems/books or any you are currently studying.

    Personally, i'm a fan of Ginsberg poetry, but i find myself torn between America and Sunflower Sutra.

    I have a general fondness of Beat poetry, but currently find myself studying Pastoral literature including Blake's Songs Of Innocence and of Experience (as well as Tess Of The d'Urbervilles, She Stoops To Conquer and As You Like It).  I find it interesting to see Pastoral's influence in more contempary literature. Poems like Sunflower Sutra sharing direct links to Blake's poetry for example. (which also makes it more fun to study for me lol)

    I loved poetry when I was younger.  Will always remember this Haiku :  (helps the optimism in hard times)

    Since my house burned down,
    I now own a better view
    of the rising moon.

    Paradise Lost is a heck of a read but I do prefer Byron to Milton.

    I really have a soft spot for The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. It's been a favorite since I was a kid- not sure why.

    Any fans of Leonard Cohen? I found him through his music, but it wasn't long before I got into his written works. Reading him has made me a better writer. His sense of emotion is profound and his ability to put it all into words is something I can only aspire to.
