He doesn't look so manley

Hart Crane

all the rest too
>>
>>7672771
you and everyone else choking on bloom's cock shill hart crane

i mean he's not bad but he's by no means "neglected"
>>
>>7672771
I was going to answer this but I remembered >>7673563 was right. Elsewhere Hart Crane is definitely neglected, but on /lit/ he's probably more popular than Spenser and non-Homer Pope!

Anyway:

Roethke
Bridges (relevant to Hopkins!)
Lawrence (everyone here knows his novels)
Kaufman (the greatest Beat after Burroughs)
and literally anybody alive (eg Ashbery, Merill, Prynne, Mehigan)

just a couple because poetry as a whole is neglected on /lit/, and while I believe there's value in reading non-English/translated poetry I can't blame people for neglecting it here.
>>
>>7673598
>and literally anybody alive (eg Ashbery, Merill, Prynne, Mehigan)
>Merrill

whoops, originally I had 'contemporary' there in place of 'alive.'

Also does Ted Hughes count as neglected on here? I just got Birthday Letters and it's pretty good, but considering how small the poetry fanclub is on /lit/ maybe his small amount of renown here *is* relatively appropriate.
>>
>>7673598
Is Ashberry neglected? Considering his difficulty, I think he's doing OK. I've only read Convex mirror.

Bukowski
>>
>>7673613
Solid point, but when you consider the types of novelists /lit/ meme-ify, I do believe Ashbery should be a bit more popular here. Granted, he's difficult in a different way than, say, Gaddis, Gass, or Pynchon are, but still.
>>
>>7672755
I second this.
>>
thomas the transformer
>>
Pretty much any pre-19th century poet aside form like Homer, Dante, Shakespeare or Milton
>>
>>7672723

Robinson Jeffers, and not just here. I only came across him via Bukowski. Otherwsie I would never have heard of him and I read a fair bit of yank poetry.
>>
A.E. Housman

Denjs Johnson (though he's neglected in general too)
>>
>>7673598
I think I have seen Spenser mentioned once in my entire entire time on /lit/ before
Really the entire pre-Shakespearean realm of English is neglected on here aside from maybe Chaucer (who is still rarely mentioned) and Beowulf. Quite a lot of that timespan is poetry considering the 'novel' had not really been conceived yet.
>>7673694
I read something by this guy in a coffee-table book and liked it enough to write his name down. Never actually went back and read any more of his stuff, thanks for reminding me.
>>
>>7674801
cheers m8 transtromer is the bomb.

everyone who bitched when he got the nobel and called it another example of swedish favoritism clearly hasn't read anything he wrote. i haven't found anyone who read him who thought he was bad. it didn't quite jive with some people but everyone i know appreciated his stuff. there's a elegant simplicity to it that's nevertheless insightful.
>>
>>7672723

hopkins is a good poet and while not talked about often anymore everyone has read him

>>7672755

bad

>>7672771

everyone has read him

>>7673598

>Roethke
mediocre
>Bridges (relevant to Hopkins!)
and not as good
>Lawrence
not good as a poet
> Kaufman
nah, not talked about for a reason
> and literally anybody alive (eg Ashbery, Merill, Prynne, Mehigan)

sure

but Merrill died of Buttfuck disease like 2 decades ago

>>7673605

>Ted Hughes

overtalked about given his limited talent

>>7673613

no he's very well respected even to newcomers to living poets. I read him before I had even read earlier semi-famous poets like Jonson

>>7673619

sure

but Allen Tate was far and away the best fugitive poet

>>7673620

garbage meme

>>7673694

sure

>>7673626

> he's difficult in a different way than, say, Gaddis, Gass, or Pynchon

depends on his phase, he switched styles very often

"three poems" is denser than the rest

>>7673884

sure

>>7673980

no he's talked about enough

>>7674801
>Really the entire pre-Shakespearean realm of English is neglected on here

there's not as much that's even close to Chaucer or Shakes in the time between the two. but it's most good and worth reading. I like surrey a lot

Is Kolsti actually good?

this

masefield and swinburne also

>>7679175
No

Patricia Lockwood that wrote a poem about Rape.
>>
>>7679185
Is he bad?
>>
>>7679197
There's worse.
>>
>>7679204
Like Bukowski?
>>
>>7679242
No.
>>
Jeremy Prynne
>>
>>7672723
Yes

>>7677055
And yes

>>7677196
I see him mentioned here and there.
>>
Wilfred Owen

That's some good cringe.
>>
Richard Brautigan.
>>
>>7673694
When he's mentioned it's always positively, but it's true he's not brought up much.
>>
>>7673626
I agree. He's really good but not idiosyncratic enough to make into a meme.
>>
>>7679178
At Month's End manages to be really rhythmic without sounding like a nursery rhyme. I love that.
>>
>>7679194
Actually not that great... There are much better poets who've written about Rape, like Ovid, Shakespeare, Pope and Yeats
>>
>>7679806
You are mentally retarded.
>>
Where to start with Auden?
>>
>>7673994
>>7679178

Hopkins, Housman, and Swinburne are some of my favorites. I'd like to add Louis MacNeice and (an American!) Wallace Stevens (though I have seen him crop up here from time to time).
>>
>>7681811
Wrong.
