The Poets

Purely From Curiosity

This was really hard to do, and there are hundreds of other poets I love apart from those named here, but I was just too curious. The order of this list no doubt changes with my daily mood or taste or even needs, but this is the official list of my top 20 favorite poets.

1.       Emily Dickinson
2.      John Milton
3.      William Butler Yeats 
4.      Theodore Roethke
5.       Rainer Maria Rilke
7.      Mathew Arnold
8.      Robert Hayden
9.      Christina Rossetti
16.   Sylvia Plath
19.   Wilfred Owen

Dickinson and Milton are the only two poets that alternate as my top favorite poet.
