Anyone here read much poetry?
And if you do who/ what do you like?
Also, (because I always recomend these books to anyone who'll listen) if you're interested in poetry- especially if you don't really know where to start- get hold of a copy of Staying Alive and Being Alive, edited by Neil Astley published by Bloodaxe books. They're amazing anthologies, very accessable but full of unexpected poems and poets. Some of the poets represented are the biggies, but there's a lot of poetry in translation and loads of more obscure poets included as well. It's the best introduction to modern poetry I can think of. They're books you can live in.
