Are any of you?

Reading any particularly good poets at the moment? Especially those similar in style to my own writing?

I’m mostly stuck in the last century in terms of who I read. It would be good to get a few more modern perspectives to draw from. Thanks I’m advance.

    your work is out on the edge…while I am well read, I find it hard to think of writers so risky. my best advice for now is to stick with the Beats, while they were largely 20th century writers, they were/are edgy. Also, Whitman, Poe, Hughes, Coleridge, were real outliers in their time and are all fitting brilliantly into modern reality.

    Hi, I’m reading Louise Gluck’s latest, Faithful and Virtuous Night. I think it’s absolutely stunning. Cheers – Rachel

    Sorry, a bit late to the recommendation party but I read a poetry collection by Richard Siken titled “Crush” that was pretty good. Billy Collins is more laid back (“blue jeans, open collar” as they say here in the US) so his poems are lighter, more fun, but still good. My favorite “classic” poet is Rainer Maria Rilke which I’m sure you’ve read but if not, you should. As for blogs, can’t say I find anyone consistently good that I’d recommend. You are one of the very rare blogs I follow because you are consistently good and the only poet I follow.
