Yes, it’s turning into a clash of the Titans:
So, come on folks. Let’s take this National Poetry Month thing out with a bang. Which are your favourite poets from the 16th to 18th centuries?* (Metaphysical fans especially welcome. Nabakov, you can have Wilmot, just exercise some discretion… I mean, not all his poetry is about c*cks and c*nts, right?)
Blog ’em and let me know; if you don’t have a blog, leave a comment with a name, link (if it’ll let you), short passage. Hey, if I can work out how to use them online polling things, maybe we’ll even have a vote later?
Oh, if you know of other postings of early modern poetry (or blogged some yourself) in the last month, drop us a line too!
(And you get extra credit if you spotted the really bad puns in this post.)
* I’ll let medieval poets in, but I’m not having any of that modern stuff. (By modern, I mean anything after the Romantics, really.)
