I used to be really into older poetry, particularly Poe, who garnered my vote, but lately I read more free form, modern poetry. Anyone ever read Pissing In The Gene Pool by Henry Rollins?

Sure he was a drunk, but I love his writing style. I'd rather read his poems that Shakespeare's sonnets anyday (which I'm going to be doing in my shakespeare class REAL SOON! )

I wonder why you didn't put down Dr. Suess. He's a classic; despite the fact that he was a little on the "crazy" side.

Kahlil Gibran

Though I do also like Poe, and Shakespeare to an extent as well...but I jsut love Kahlil Gibran, his poems are so beautiful, and thought provoking.. I don't always agree with what he's saying, but I like the way he says it lol!

I love Boris Pasternak especially his poetry in "Doctor Zhivago".

brilliant novel. it's a novel, isn't it? maybe you mean he writes novels in poetic way? Anyway, i talked to this guy who first saw the film which made him cry, but he said that when he afterwards read the novel he literally burst into tears. the novel illustrates all the characters' emotions and psychological states brilliantly. Can't put that in a film, even if its 3 hours long, it would have to be 3000 hours long. But it's the same with any story-realisation of the story. the closest to balance the story i saw is 2001 a space oddyssey. Still, i love the film, too. Especially cause of alec guiness, who acts perfect, as usual, and Maurice Jarre's (Jean-Michel's father) "Lara's theme".

Bob Dylan.

(Seriously, I consider him a poet. I've always been a bit crazy.)

And he really isn't 'pop music'. More like... a folksy...type of music. I can't explain it too well.

It IS a novel. But Doctor Zhivago was a poet and the last chapter of the book consists of the poems Zhivago wrote. One of the poems (my favorite one) is called "Hamlet". Remember I told you I wrote a work on Stoppard? Well, actually it was a work on "Hamlet" and it's interpretations in Russian and foreign literature. Yes, I love "Hamlet" and I think it's one of the greatest and one of my favorites pieces of literature. Well, one of the chapters of my work was about Dr Zhivago and Zhivago's poem "Hamlet" as an interpretation of Shakespear's play.
By the way, I've never seen the movie. I can't imagine a Dr Zhivago movie. How can you fit everything that happened to our country at that terrible time, all the sufferings Russian people went through in one movie?

Ahh Doctor Zhivago! That book has been on the top 5 of my reading list for such a long time... I meant to read it last summer (since its a hefty book and if I started it durring school I would never read it all) but I picked up guitar and really didn't get alot of reading done...as I usually do in the summer.

But this year I will! (Hopefully) I've heard so many people say what a lovely book it is.

On the subject of books that have great poetry, Jane Eyre has quite a nice little poem in it written by Charlotte Bronte also. And alot of the things Mr. Rochester says in that novel could almost be called poetry, I mean really, no one talks like that!! But thats part of his character's charm I guess, and part of the reason why film adaptations never seem to work. Like the BBC one from the 80s, if alot of the dialogue is in the script it doesn't come off as natural, yet like the new BBC movie with the dumbed down dialogue you really aren't getting the beauty of what Bronte wrote.

And if were considering lyricists as poets then George, John, and Paul definately deserve to be considered as some of my favourite poets....
