My interest in poetry is fairly eclectic, and eccentric. I go
from the classics to the obscure, but I'm not *really* as informed
about poetry as I should be. My favorite stuff comes from the
Shelley/Byron period of English literature. Tennyson is also obviously
a favorite. Coleridge. But then I jump right over into e.e. cummings
and Lawrence Ferlinghetti (no, I never really recovered from beat
poetry, some of it still works for me). I tend to go for the more
structured poetry; free verse is okay to a point, but often gets
misused or used as an excuse for sloppy writing.
