Do Shakespeare, Kipling, Longfellow, Wordsworth, Shelly, Keats, Frost, and others, seem as brothers?
Do you as a writer feel like the ghosts, or spirits past, as poets, try to communicate through your pen?
No,I do not feel this.Why do you ask,i wonder?
I sometimes feel in touch with another part of my being or soul.Maybe my Muse... but not any one person from the past.I like some poets more than others so no doubt they influence me.I would never dare to think I was like Shakespeare....I love his Sonnets.
Only in the sense that each was attempting to address what it means to be human. Some, like the Romantics and Robert Frost, were inspired by the natural world and the influence it has on the creative mind. Others, primarily WS, relied on historical events to describe men and women (mostly men) under stress and their reactions to it. His tragedies are, in my judgment, his best and most insightful works, although I am still moved by Henry's speech before Agincourt. All the poets you mentioned were creative geniuses, so I suppose you could count them as members of a "family," even if they displayed divergent methods of explicating their roles in it.
Thanks Huck. I appreciate your response and words of wisdom.
