    Who are your top three favorite poets?

    For me, it would be Sylvia Plath, Ted Hughes, and Virgil (or Jim Morrison, I can't decide).

    Definitely Wallace Stevens, Jack Gilbert, and Emily Dickinson.  No better poets ever. The great thing being Gilbert is still alive and his collected poems comes out in February from Knopf.

    My three favorite are, in order: John Keats, Walt Whitman and Robert Frost. Not because I don't read poetry, I just love nature-based poetry!
