There are so many talented gifted writers and poets at the Hubs but two of my favorites are Wayne Brown and Neilleanna they write with such passion and color.
It's hard to choose a favorite poet. There are a lot of good poets out there. I like my own for most part though.
Philip Larkin (today - it varies depending on mood ) because , unrelentingly glum as he is , he always makes me smile .And he looks like Eric Morecambe.
John Keats became my favorite poet after I saw Bright Star. I love his poems because they are so beautiful and moving.
Pablo Neruda would be my choice. The Chilean lyrical poet, the best love poet ever. A real man who can teach men about love. He writes in Spanish but survives translation. Get "20 love poems and a song of despair".
He was a man of courage too. He was Chilean ambassador to Spain and in Madrid when Franco's Nazis marched in. He behaved with heroic self possession - the courage of a poet, and not like the human shit that recalled him in disgrace for "bias".
He was the friend of Garcia Lorca, one of Spain's finest lyric poets, murdered by Franco in 1936. Lorca too translates well. Read "The faithless wife" from his famous anthology "The gipsy ballads" or try "Lines on the death of a bullfighter"
Robert Frost, he could blend metaphors with observation of nature in ways that directly influenced my own writing style.
Robert Frost He sees things so clearly and its easy to imagine when reading his poerty that your right there looking at the very scenery he is writing about. That and as a little girl a babysitter read to me his poem A Girl's Garden and I fell in love with poetry.
EMILY DICKINSON wrote two of my favourite poems - WILL THERE REALLY BE A MORNING ? which was used as the title for Frances Farmer's Autobiography and AMPLE MAKE THIS BED, which was in William Styron's masterpiece SOPHIE'S CHOICE. I also love NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY by Robert Frost. I have it inscribed on a pocket watch. I don't know why I wanted a pocket watch in these modern times but I did. Barbra-Lee
