    right. let's return to matters poetic instead of the nonsensical postings of Mr. 'Baxter' (read the green bit under the title 'poetics & poetry discussion' please) . has anybody got any thoughts on the 20th century poet Stevens?

    has anyone come across some honeypence chickens, and the 21 votes that go with it
    it took me three minutes to write, three minutes for honeypence or whatever his name is to cry in his cup, it is a sad day when the freedom to write a poem is taken away

    I would be interested to hear of other poetry sites folks visit. Today I discovered the 'Modern American Poetry' site. What's interesting about it is that it includes not only poems but biographical material and critical essays about the poems, if you like that sort of thing. Some of the academic criticism is a bit much. But if you're interested in learning more about your favorite (American) poets, this is a good place. Included are Elizabeth Bishop, Sylvia Plath, Gregory Corso, W.S. Merwin, and dozens of other knowns and unknowns.

      The Academy of American Poets is a good sampler site, with capsule biographies and links to poems of the individuals that you can find on the net.
