I read a poem in high school once about a man that constantly read romantic tales of knights and chivalry and wished he was born in that time period. However, he spends so much time dreaming about this that he neglects the real world. I think it was written in the 19th or early 20th century but that's all I can recall. Any suggestions?

    I am sure your poem is " Miniver Cheevy" by Edwin Arlington Robinson. You can find it here:
