The type of poetry that intrigues me is the type you would not expect to read, something creative and out of the blue. Something odd and something that's truly deep within the possibilities of the human mind.
that intrigues me? definitely Poe, Blake. Emily Dickensen, Rumi.
Rilke, the old English romantics, Tennyson, pre-raphaelites
and if you don't like that then you can check mine out, or there are a quite a few on here who are worth a read
Thanks qwark I'll be sure to check your poetry you've talked about and i will leave comments to let you know i was there......
The most creative out of the blue I've read is Anne Sexton - her confessional poetry has drawn me in. Great poetry should surprise and delight in both meaning and words, draw the reader into a world they didn't see before.
I like the old school poets whose work was so deep and steeped in the allusion and erudition and discipline that used to make poetry (art) deep and expansive and not only requiring careful study, but worthy of careful study. Art you learn from.
Not so much of that any more.
I used to indulge in the traditional poetry. However, given the current state of things in society the only poetry I wish to hear is the sound of a responsible and caring parent correcting and teaching their child. Heck, even the vulgar language of a child against their parent who has just corrected them is a song to me. It means that the parent is doing their job and that's it's getting to the child.
I love Bukowski and Neruda. I get intoxicated just reading their lines. The two best damned poets in MY universe.
My love of poetry stems from the Beat Poets Generation. I enjoy writers such as T.S Elliot and Wallace Stevens...and then of course Poe, but he came to be in the mid 1800, which is not exactly the Beat Generation which I believe is defined to be in the 1950's, if I am wrong about the year-sorry...
T.S. Eliot is one of my favorites. That guy was deep. Reading his work is so amazing (and humbling).
I agree. He is one of the best in my opinion Have you read Wallace? Eliot was said to be inspired by him...
I think this is how one of his poems ends (I cant remember the beginning word for word), it is called
-Sunday Morning (it is about a woman dreaming of Jesus)
She hears, upon that water without sound,
A voice that cries, "The tomb in Palestine
Is not the porch of spirits lingering.
It is the grave of Jesus, where he lay."
And in the isolation of the sky,
At evening, casual flocks of pigeons make
Ambiguous undulations as they sink,
Downward to darkness, on extended wings.
Oh my....Did I write that in a dream...are you my alter ego?? LOL
T.S. Eliot is my all time favorite. I cannot read The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock without crying. All of his work, poetry or prose, is amazing. He is self-deprecating, funny, observant, heart-wrenching and more.
Pablo Neruda is another favorite...He just makes me melt in my heart...and *cough* other places...lol
You better watch out, I may be just that (alter ego) lol...
I like the Waste Land by Eliot and Hollow Men...guess the despair and train of thought and seeing the truth for what it was in his eyes-appealed to me when I first read them...
Hey, if that's the case, I couldn't ask for a better alter ego! ;-)
Yes, those two are particularly spectacular. Have you read Eyes That Last I Saw in Tears and The Hippopotamus? The first is sorrowful and beautiful, and the latter is cynical and hilarious.
Don't you just love the poetry that is cynical?
It pisses so many off and brings up so much in a persons spirit and soul... It is all in perception...
I would have to say that is one of the beautiful things about poetry...Although what the author was thinking and feeling when writing is important- it is just as/if not more appealing to know how each individuals draws inspiration, judgment or what not out of each line that is drawn together within a poem?
H.C Porter, the beats generation huh how intriguing you really seem like you thrive on poetry which is inspiring and interesting. Myself i wouldn't say i thrive on poetry but a variety of stories, poetry and comedy so much within my mind it's hard to just narrow it down to just one.
The Glass Spider, it seems like i need to do more digging in poetry of old and new to strengthen w hat i write or I'll just look to you for more titles to check out...........
Shadesbreath, you making me more interested in reading poetry created by T.S. Eliot........
Anything that is well written (at least to me), as well as deep and emotional. Something that makes you think.
I don't know much about poetry but I really like the poems buy that guy from"Nantucket"!They allways start the same.
"There was a young man from Nantucket"!
I tend to go for 'disturbing poetry' a lot of times, and yes I forgot to mention Jose Garcia Villa as one of my faves as well, I just can't get enough of his provoking lyricism and violent modernism...
MadCowWriting, i understand you have problems and you read this kind of poetry to resolve your issues but it is quite interesting reading them though, LMFAO...................
Seriously though they are something to keep you on the edge of your seat, sometimes i find writing about disturbing and disarraying poetry can really bring out one's creative ability........
Yes thanks for the comment Healthy Living Is..........
What type of poetry intrigues me? mmmmmmmm, let's see it's has to have choas and destruction, disarray is always good as well, it's has to catch my eye. Keep me intrigued, you know really motivated to read.
My favorite poet is Edgar Allan Poe.
I like poetry that actually rhymes.
The type of poetry that intrigues me most...hhmm...I don't know what it would be called, but here's an example, a portion of a poem I wrote years ago and would like to know a bit more about if I knew anything about poetry.
Can you see what I hear, said the blind man to the deaf man
Can you tell me what I see, said the deaf man to the mute
I can't remember anymore, but it keeps going in that fashion. A complete conversation between the blind man, the deaf man, and the mute concerning what is and can be seen, heard, spoken. I understand it, only because I wrote it, but didn't want to acknowledge it at the time. It was an internal struggle within myself to be myself.
I like William Wordsworth. He is a master image painter with words.
I like poetry that can have multiple meanings--a play on words--a play on emotions. Poems that make meaning to many readers.
I have no pre-selected qualities. Like a beautiful woman, I know a good poem when I encounter one.
I like the description and thought provoking mystery of Rilke's
'You Who Never Arrived.'
I like the rhythm and song of the language in Dylan Thomas
and though I should hate it I like the poem
'The Lady of Shallot.' for the images it conjurs up.

adult children to grow. They are the type of parents who subconsciously sabotage their children's career chances and advancements. They seem to be deathly afraid to allow their children to establish their own independent lives. They want their adult children to be NEAR...

I have recently started dabbling in poetry. I have found it to be quite therapeutic for me. I asked a fellow hubber who has some professional training in the area of poetry to critique my work and to give me an honest review.She has done so. In a nutshell she says my poems have honesty and passion...
