I don't know if there's a thread on this but anyway i thought i'd discuss it. Anyone read poetry? Anyone write it? What are you into? Discuss it all.

Also , as a side note if anyone can recommend me some more poetry to get into. I've bought 'The pleasures of the damned' by Bukowski today and 'The Flowers of Evil' By Baudelaire. I'm already a fan of their works and i'd like to get into others, specifically Bukowski type 'beat generation' poets.

I like Jim Morrison's Tortilla's poetry. I also have this book that's loaded with a lot of poetry from these great American poets. A lot of the one's I've read so far seem to have been from the period (100 yrs or so) around the revolutionary war.

I would post some of my own, but I don't know if you guys would like them much.

Anyways, T.S. Eliot is my favorite writer, and I enjoy writing from time to time.

Those threads are not relating to a general discussion of poetry, but instead are asking specific questions or asking the user to make up a poem in their post.

Poetry sucks.


EDIT: Seriously though, look up Leaves of Grass. Will not regret.

I'm not a huge fan of poetry, but the Raven is excellent if you haven't read it. (which I doubt you haven't)

Spoken Word > Written Poetry.

Yeah, I said it.


As long as they're delivered in a good way I don't care.

Jesse Bernstein was great imo.

I can't be bothered to look at that shit. My internet habits are pit, mafia, youtube, facebook, other forums, and porn. This site only supplies two of those.

I enjoy being poetic outside of poems; in short stories, novels, and speeches etc.

Don't really care for poetry anymore, it's dead as anything written in a witty is poetry these days.

I used to write alot, read some old poetry, love(d) it.

There was a thread where I discussed poetry I liked.

But I can't find it.

So just use your imagination.

Just wanted to make sure you saw my edit Zoot, since I think you'll like it. It's not a lot like Bukowski or Bernstein, but Whitman's definitely great for anyone.
#25
This is probably one of the most thought provoking, and genuinely spine tingling poems I've ever heard. Would definitely recommend to anyone starting out in spoken word.
#26
Quote by element4433

Because you're a scary person. I can imagine you liking some fucked up things.

Need to check out Whitman. I find it weird how 'the flowers of evil' i bought today at random is really in a lot of ways similar to the bukowski 'pleasures of the damned'. They're both kind of linked in their way.

You seem like Clint Eastwood, but less bad ass. I could imagine you killing/banning everyone for whatever reason you would have without a care in the world.

I've never actually read any book by Bukowski since I can't find books anywhere. I've read loads of short stories and poems online though.

Oh and I found this site: http://www.bartleby.com/142/14.html which is basically Leaves of Grass in one page. In case you feel like checking some of his stuff out.

I enjoy poetry, but mostly romantic period stuff. Free verse does nothing for me.

That's the opposite of me.

But anyways,

I like Federico Garcia Lorca, Langston Hughes, Walt Whitman, William Carlos Williams, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Sylvia Plath, and so on etc.

Below the thunders of the upper deep;
Far far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge seaworms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.


Poetry's rad!

I always liked Carl Sandburg, short simple stuff. . . .sometimes, ramble, ramble, poetry, jargon.

and Poe.

I get Poe like a mofo.
yep just wrote that!
