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)
