We've started studying Dead Poets Society in English, one of my favourite movies and it's beginning to interest me in poetry.

Can anyone suggest any good sites or forums or anything with a good collection of established poets or anything?
Something with tips or ideas on how to get the best out of what I can write myself perhaps?

A lady, heavily veiled and weary
Came softly and knocked on your door-
“I come from the burning earth, the Warsaw Ghetto,
My clothes torn, my eyebrows singed and my lips bloodied.”


Yeah, man. Check out some Rachel Korn.

Tool Lyrics

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

Quote by Born A Fool
As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

you realize we have a songwriting & lyrics forum that has a lot of resources for poetry writing/reading, right? probably a good idea to start there, and post a similar thread in the techniques subforum if you can't find an answer by browsing threads already there.
O! music: Click (Youtube)


^ Click to see an acoustic arrangement of Ke$ha's 'Your Love is my Drug' - everyone's favourite song.

why are Bukowski's poems even widely appreciated anyway? I don't know what's so special about them other than them being neo-modern word wankerings.

Because of his depressing self-loathing/insane ego. That one poem about his own death was great.
