Why is he not higher up? I love this guy!
Shakespeare is way to overrated! Edgar is a poet that knew ow to express his opinions by using such a colorful language and text
The Raven is Fantastic, great rhyming and truly very intellegent.
But a man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for? - Browning draws characters and expresses complex human emotions so beautifully.
Never seek to tell thy love,
Love that never told can be;
For the gentle wind does move
I told my love, I told my love,
I told her all my heart;
Trembling, cold, in ghastly fears,
Ah! She did depart!
Soon as she was gone from me,
A traveller came by,
He took her with a sigh.
He is the first stage of romantic poet.
No man is an island entire of itself; every man
Is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
Is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
Well as a manor of thy friends or of thine
Own were; any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom
The bell tolls; it tolls for the.
He is in the excellent poet of all the time.
The best satirist in English Poetry
The greatest American poet of the last century, whose poems can only get more and more famous.
In symbolism and structure, an accessible modern master, yet his works require repeated diggings, not undone by time and familiarity!
People are not voting for him because they can't comprehend his poems.
Way too low on this list
The woman was a genius, beyond comparrsion. Her poetry was unique. Modern, yet with class. Her or Robert Frost should be number 1. With Shakespeare and Yeats second and third!
Best war poetry I ever had the pleasure to read and analyse.
The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,
The lowing herd wind slowly o'er the lea,
The ploughman homeward plods his weary way,
And leaves the world to darkness and to me.
I cannot believe that Thomas a huge amount of votes. I think that he was a genius and obviously, greatly under-appreciated.
No one wrote about the frailty of the human condition like Dylan Thomas. Should be at the top of this list not No.49
I meant that Thomas doesn't have a huge amount of votes of course!V 1 Comment
