Sam Rasnake posted the following tag/list at his blog, Sam Of The Ten Thousand Things and invited me to post my own list. Here’s his post:
may not have but must...
Here’s the tag:
Five poetry collections you may not have read but certainly must:
Kathryn Stripling Byer / Wildwood Flower (LSU, 1992)
Tory Dent / What Silence Equals (Persea, 1993)
Brigit Pegeen Kelly / Song (BOA, 1995)
Wayne Koestenbaum / Rhapsodies of a Repeat Offender (Persea, 1994)
Robert Morgan / Groundwork (Gnomon, 1979)
The collections, for whatever reason, should be a bit off the beaten path. And need not have caused the earth to open and swallow you whole.
And here’s mine:
Thomas Hardy / Winter Words in Various Moods and Meters (1928)
Kenneth Koch / The Art of Love (1975)
Wallace Stevens / Harmonium (1923)
Allen Ginsberg / Howl and Other Poems (1955)
Robert Creeley / For Love (1962)
