the miserable old cunt
on radio 4 now and then? west country.
god i must be really passionate about poetry if i dont know my fave poet's name
My husband likes a pint of ale
He likes a pint of bitter
But more than all of these he likes
To take me up the shitter.
Gerard Manley Hopkins
All naysayers hold your motherfucking tongues, he's a genius!
Show me these people!
I'll smack upside dere heads. Or something.
Actually the comedies can be pretty lame. Tragedy 4 eva.
I love Gerard Manley Hopkins, though he singularly fails to live up to his name.
Still, 'That Nature is a Heraclitean Fire and of the comfort of the Resurrection', eh?
my favourite is probably Pied Beauty. All the amazing linguistic trickery, but so much more understated than some of the really bombastic ones.
but it is something I always think about getting into.
I prefer song lyrics! I think melodies make such a difference; adding dynamics and rhythmic pronunciation helps set the tone and increase the impact. I guess that's cheating a bit, you're supposed to find that for yourself with poetry.
My favourite poem is Byron's When We Two Parted, but that is from a limited frame of reference.
i like siegfried sassoon.
i'm all about war poetry.
is my proper answer. Sorry George.
i've only read a few of his poems, "The toad" (or somesuch) being one of them. It was alright but I didn't "get it".
I quite like Yeats' poncey stuff, not bothered about his historical stuff.
DONNE AND DUSTED
i'll add walt whitman
fucking dark and fucking beautiful.....er and a lot of poems about fucking.
I'd forgotten about him!
next you'll be telling me you forgot about Dre!
LIKE MY COCK
ALSO, you have reminded me that we were talking about this at ATP and you had no idea what i was on about.
hardly art. new sub pop sub-label.
both the le loup and arthur & yu records are a) great and b) out here on memphis industries and c) available for a fiver each on the MI website. YEAH!
fu**ing dark and fu**ing beautiful.....er and some poems about fu**cking (er sort of, of sorts....if you can see his allagories)
srsly the most beautiful poetry.
I also love Coleridge and Blake
by a long way
is pretty cool. He's got a good sense of melancholy
without a doubt. Reading Howl for the first time was truly epic.
but it gave us lols turning his poems into innuendo
Edgar Allan Poe
Theodor Seuss Geisel
W. H. Auden
I like the most, I think, thanks to The Hold Steady.
I know I'm lowering the tone, but it is!
And more people will actually read the thing now.
Dead - T.S.Eliot
*with apologies to all you fine folks who had Duffy RUINED for you by that god-awful anthology you had to study at school. The woman rules - check out 'Meantime'.
