|Poetry and Anti-Poetry|
I used to dislike poetry, but I liked literature and when one reads a certain amount of prose he cannot
avoid poetry. So, slowly I started reading poetry and learned to enjoy it. Still I prefer prose by far.
Here are some of my favourite poems and haiku:
The great master of Haiku.
One of the first poets I've read. Not one of my favourites though.
William Butler Yeats
Not the kind of stuff you'd recite to your beloved.
Algernon Charles Swinburne
When he does not use alliteration too much he is even better than Poe.
Crane called these not poems, but lines. Very interesting.
Edgar Allan Poe
Not surprisingly, I started reading poetry with Poe. A true genious, my favourite.
I really like Joyce's poetry, yet I did not like his prose.
