    list of poets I read most

    note-notice there is a near even break between men and women poets. I am not biased. When I buy an anthology of poets, there must be this near even split between male and female or I don't buy. I want to read the voices of both. No anthology of all woman, nor of all men. These days publishers are aware that they will lose sales unless they represent both. Listed in no order of preference.

    1.Barbara Guest-female

    2.Lissa Wolsak-female

    3.George Oppen-male

    4.Johannes Bobrowski-male (as translated by Ruth and Matthew Mead)

    5.Antonio Pozzi (as translated by Lawrence Venuti)-female

    6.Paul Celan-male (translated by Michael Hamburger)

    7.Olga Broumas-female

    8.Federico Garcia Lorca-male

    9.Charles Olson-male

    10.Theodore Eslin-male

    11.Mary Barnard-female

    12.Emily Dickinson-female

    13.Denise Levertow-female

    14.Robert Creeley-male

    15.Larry Eigner-male

    "Don't worry about readers. Their on their own and will find meanings for your poems in their histories and yearnings. Let language go where it wants. If readers respond to your language, the poem can't help but mean." Poet Richard Hugo
