The problem with my knowledge of poetry is that I was only exposed to really archaic 17th century poetry (at least, I think it was 17th century). I disliked poetry so much! I was forced to actively avoid it in Modern British Literature after all my terrible experiences. I think the only poem I liked was The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock because it was the only one I read. Also, mermaids.
I was a terrible student.
I have Leaves of Grass on my list, but I'm looking for modern poetry to check out; 1920 to now. I'm looking for actual
collections of poetry, not say, verse novels. Verse novels make me want to stab myself in the face.
Help a poetry failure out!
