P.S. see my Poetry Spotlight Posts for my thoughts on some of my favorite poems and poets.
The Collected Poems of Sylvia Plath
The Selected Poems of Edna St. Vincent Millay
This book has been on my night-stand for years. I worship Millay and her poems are so easy for me to get lost in. I love that she has really long and complex poems and short and sweet poems; she's perfect for whatever mood I'm in. Plus her and Plath kill it in the feminist poetry category. Millay's Collected Poems is on my wishlist, at the very top of it!
Anthem for a Doomed Youth by Wilfred Owen
Owen is one of the very best war poets, and I love this little Penguin Little Black Classics collection of his poems. These poems are so powerful and breathtaking. I've only read a few out of here, but I'm thinking about diving into this one the next few nights because I have loved what I've read so far.
Tell me some of your poets or poems! I really want to add some more
to my already long list of favorite poems!
